Reflections for Patrol Officer John Kevin Lamm


I never met you, Officer Lamm, but I remember the night that you gave your life for your fellow officers as though it just happened yesterday. Every time that I drive by Mercier Street, my heart breaks. I will never forget the supreme sacrifice that you made that night.

I wanted to tell you that I had the pleasure of meeting your son, Elliot, a couple of years ago as he was working towards earning his high school diploma. I instantly knew that he was your son; the likeness was so strong. I know that you must be so proud of the man he has become. It was apparent that he had become a man with a great capacity to care about people. I pray for him often, and for all who loved you.

Rest in peace.
... a grateful Fairbanks citizen

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 12th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for the solace of all who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. To your Mom, I share your anquish in losing a beloved child which surely has to be life's greatest sorrow. You are in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace

Another year has passed without you. Hard to believe it's been 12 years! I couldn't have imagined the impression you would leave in my life. I thank you for that.
As I type this, teary eyed, (typical me)"Temporary Home" is playing on the radio. Very fitting! This is our temporary home...
Love and miss you as always!

What can I say??? It has been 12 years Kevin yet so often it seems as tho it just happened that you left us. I have thought of you so much especially yesterday (New Years Day), we brought in another new year but each new year is a reminder to me that it was at that very time that you were taken from us. All I can do is repeat the words that your Aunt wrote back then:
We will (do) think of you each and every day
And love you Just as Much as when you slipped away!!
I love you Kevin!!

You are joined by four more officers who were murdered today. This world is cruel and full of monsters walking our streets. The sacrifice made today has had an incredible impact. The overwhelming feeling of grief is felt worldwide.
I am fighting back the tears as I write this. I am so so sad. I am sad for the loss of you. I am sad for the loss of the two from Vegas recently, and the four in Washington today.
I guess this is the reason we do what we do. We rid the world of scum like this cowardly monster.
Embrace our brothers and sister who join you and rest in peace knowing we carry on the fight.
I love you and miss you Kevin!!

Forever in my heart....

So many officers joining you Kev. It's incredible the monsters that are out there. I just hope and pray that the work we continue to do makes a difference. I miss you constantly and think of you often. I honor your memory everyday of my life!
With so much love and respect,
forever in my heart, forever your friend and sister in blue....

Mom not keeping track of time well it seems, sorry - 37 or 38, it has been just too long since seeing you!!!!! I miss you so much as we all do. I have in my memory so many things about you that are so special, I hold these in my mind and heart, you were such a special person, I hope you know all the good things we loved about you!!! Love Mom

Kevin, it has been awhile since placing a reflection here. Your birthday just passed on the 6th - can't believe you would have been 37 this year, can it be 11 years since you were taken from us - still miss you so much and still think of you each and every day. I love you Kevin and tho we can't be with you physically you are with us in our hearts!!!

I was thinking about the days of being an explorer and working with you at the University before you went to FPD. It's hard to believe you are gone, and I think of you often. Thank you for your selfless service.

Well Kevin...
Here it is, another Thursday, January 1st. ELEVEN YEARS... incredible. Two or three, even five ok, but eleven? You know I still think about you plenty and with Elliot getting his family going strong, it just brings back memories of you and him. Like that one night when you, him, and Dave were shopping at Foodland. You and Dave were playing 'keep-away' with him as you got groceries - what a bunch of clowns. : )

I miss you, man. Please continue to watch over us and know that we go out everyday knowing you're there.
Rest easy, bro, we've got it from here.
See ya!

Thank you for your selfless service. Your actions were that of a true HERO. You are loved and missed more than you know. I know that you are in God's loving arms and patrolling His kingdom.

I pray daily for your family. I pray that God holds them close when they are having difficult days. I also thank them for sharing you with us for those 26 years.

God Speed Brother in Blue.

July 15, 2008

Kevin, it is mother's day and you have been in my thoughts so much. I heard the song that was played so many times during those days after you so suddenly left us = John's
theme from Dancing with wolves = it brought back those
memories of the procession leaving Fairbanks after the
memorial service and the many news broadcasts, what a special tribute to you and the
sacrifice you made - so many people loved you.
As your mom, all the memories I have of you from the day
you were placed in my arms up to the day I stood there in
the emergency room holding your hand and saying good bye,
the memories of those 26 years are etched in my mind and
heart, I will never forget you and will always love you,
I thank God that he chose me to be you mother.
Rest in Peace my youngest son

You are gone but not forgotten and are always in our thoughts and prayers.
We will never forget you and your sacrifice.

We lost a sister this week. She lost her battle after a terrible car accident. She was an organ donor and will give life even after her death.
Although we may never understand why, God has a plan and we have to have faith in Him. Without faith, we are lost.


Until we meet again...

"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms: it means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die."

Officer Lamm knew what he was geeting into when he stepped between the gunman and his wounded brother. Dispite dire circumstances, Officer Lamm chose to hold the line. You can rest now sir, we'll hold it from here. See you in Heaven.
