Capt. Hemsing,
On today, the 116th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO but for our Country as well when you served during the Civil War.

A Civil War Veteran, Chief of Police, and a Captain in the State prison, only to go insane after his attack. There is only so much a man can stand before breaking. This man endured more than the average person ever could. Captain Hemsing, your manliness supersedes the definition of what a man should be. RIP Sir.

I am privileged to be among the first to leave a reflection for you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 113th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birthplace of my son. 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.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered
