I wish I would have had more time with you. It's been a lifetime since you were lost. You were an inspiration to me and many others.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

R.I.P., Captain Ashley. You lost your own life trying to save other lives, and you are truly a hero who should never be forgotten.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 44th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.
Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

Captain Ashley, I was with you on that last day, walking the riverbank with my partner. The last I saw of you was as the rapid current took your boat down the river and out of our sight. I was a rooky cop that day only a few days out of the academy. That was a day of learning the hard reality of police work. I will never forget you. Rest in peace my Captain.

Sir, you unselfishly gave your life to help others. May God bless you and your son, and may He continue to watch over your family.

Well. In a few months it will have been 36 years. Isn't that amazing? I have often thought of posting something, but didn't quite know what to say (there's just so much to say). I guess I'll just leave it at this: Your influence and love have never been far from me. During my 15 years as an active copper, and my 20 years as a police trainer, I have tried to live up to your example. I have faltered and stumbled many times, but somehow you have always brought me back to an even keel. You have now been gone for 2/3 of my life. I thought it would become harder to remember you, details and tone, voice and thunder. Boy, was I ever wrong! You are with me today, just as strong -- if not stronger -- than you were then. And I'm grateful for your life and for your influence on me. Although I fear that I have not, I hope that I have lived my life in a way that would make you proud of me.
I still miss you so...
Your loving son.
