Reflections for Deputy Stacia Suzanne Alyea

I remember when Stacia came through the ILEA. And, I could tell she was going to become a "GOOD" Police Officer. Her attitude was always positive and had a great sense of humor. After she graduated I would her request for her to return as a "Guest Instructor" during the Course Practicum Training. Her professionalism in interacting with the Basic Officers was outstanding in regards to her critiquing them on the various scenarios they were dealing with.

I was "HONORED" to stand at her coffin during her viewing.

She touched my heart. I had recently joined the Shelby County Sheriff's dept. She was so nice to me and we became friends instantly. It was just one of those things when you have that connection. She died on my daughters 1st birthday and I remember the conversation we had prior. I really miss you Stacia. It's been 20 years and it is just like yesterday for me.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 16th anniversary 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you. Your family is in my heart's embrace today. Thanks to your children for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections. I have written many times that a mother's love is fierce and unyielding... so is the love the Zamudio children have for their mother. I am sure that your mom is proud that her family is continuing her legacy of public service.

Rest In Peace.

It's amazing how little time helps. It's 16 years and hurts like it was yesterday. I miss your laugh and your toughness, I wish my children would've been able to enjoy all that you were. Law Enforcment is in my blood and it runs deep, thanks to all the guidence you gave me when I was younger. I hope I'm half the man you expected and even a quarter the cop you were.

Stacia, it has been a decade and a half since that fateful night. I was working the night shift on Rushville Pd and then got involved in your pusuit. I chased the suspect into Franklin Co, and upon being involved in an accident with him, then took him into custody. I have since retired some 8 years ago but still remember that night and almost every single detail. It was only after his capture that I learned of your fate. My heart grew so heavy in knowing a sister officer has paid the ultimate price. I sat in court at the sentencing and pondered how little price he had to pay in comparison to what the cost was to you and your family and to all of us that wear the badge. You wore yours in honor. May you rest in Gods sweet arms.

It has been over 15 years since that night. I still work the late shift and think of you often, and go by your gravesite. That night was one of the worst phone calls I ever got. I pray for you and the kids and know you are looking down on them.

Rest easy, and know that you are missed by many

Mom, in three days i turn 22. its hard to imagine everything youve missed, the birthdays, the proms, the graduations, the weddings, and your grandchildren. even though i miss you everyday i know it wont bring you back. 15 years is a long time to go without a mom and it feels normal which i hate, but know that i love you and i am always thinking of you.

Dear Family,
I served with Stacia in the USAF at Sembach Germany (1982-1984). I was friends with her and Roger Zamudio with the 601st Security Police Squadron. When I heard of this news I cannot imagine how all of you must have felt. Ironically I was in the wedding of her and Roger. I am deeply saddened.
God Bless,

Deputy Sheriff Alyea,
On today, the 15th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community-but also for our Country when you served as an SP in the USAF. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Hey mommy,

I cant believe its been 14 years and it just keeps going. It is so hard to be without you. I think back on all the things you have missed. My first date, my first kiss, my first dance, prom, graduation, the army, and now my wedding. As i was standing there about to marry the man you would of wanted for me I could only think of how you have missed the previous chapters in my life and not the new one i was about to begin. Oh, i wish you could of met josh. you would of loved him. we have been married five months now and wanting a baby.I wish you could be here not just for me but for zach and ky and allie too. I wish you could of given me away and see your grandkids too. Its hard to think that you died when i was five and in two weeks i turn 21. I really miss you and hope that you still watch over me from time to time. I love you mommy.

love Ashlin

You have so much to be so proud of. You have an incredible son who is an absolutely amazing father. We wish you could be here to play with your granddaughter Allie. Andrew hurts daily knowing that you will never meet her but I know you are watching and smiling from Heaven looking down. I can see the love you have for him and I thank you for stopping by to say hello every once in a while. It is great knowing that Allie has such a wonderful grandma and it is a shame she will never truly get to know you. Thank you for watching over us. We love you.
