Your brother misses you. Your niece and nephew Kayla and Brian remember vaguely about you. They are grown up and are amazing people. You would've loved them. You have a nephew that you've never met, Matthew Alexander and a cute little niece that you never met, Kathryn Rose. We know that you are up there looking upon us. And that you are our guardian angel. Mom and dad regan are still with us but I'm sure you know that. And there's not a day that goes by that they don't think of you. We miss you and love you.

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.
GOD Bless

Dave was more than an officer and volunteer fireman- he was a tireless worker and always there to help someone. He was not only my cousin, but friend. Years later I still laugh while telling stories and reflecting about the times we had. Never forgotten brother!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninth 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.

Rest In Peace.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Being that I am now an instructor with in the Police Academy I think about company 98-34. I look out to the seats were we would be sitting if we were back in those times. I remember how you brought your cheese sandwiches for lunch wrapped in the wonder bread packaging and how we teased you. I cant forget the day in the auditorium when a guest speaker said to the recruits "look to the person at your left, look to the person at your right, this person may not make their two years probation and we smirked and said see you in twenty. Even though your no longer with us I still think about you, how much fun we had as we sat next to each other every day for eight months and how I hate the fact that the guest speaker was right. We all miss you Regan. Rest in Peace. Love Pugh

4 Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; 5 it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends

Officer Regan, thank you for your service and dedication. You will be missed and never forgotten. May your family, fiancee, and everyone who loves you stay strong in the memories and love you shared with them.

I lost my fiancée, Scott Stewart, in August of 2002. There not a day that goes by without him in my heart and mind. I understand the pain your fiancee must feel from being ripped from you to soon. The support and love from others who know my pain have helped tremendously.

To your fiancee, if you ever feel the need to reach out to others who know your pain, please contact me and other s/o’s. A search on yah groups will bring you to us. Just enter the below as it is.

Always remember as long as your heart beats David will be with you. He’s there everyday in your heart.

Every so often since i began the Police Academy in January I would visit this page and read the story of a featured officer on the first page killed in the line of duty. Today I saw the picture and the patch, I now wear proudly of a fallen officer, a brother, who i will never get to meet Every time I see this I read the comments made by friends and family and see an officer that was loved and adored by many. RIP Officer Regan, the many lost from the NYPD, and the others lost around the country
