Your heroism and service is honored today, the 65th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I was vey touched by your daughter's moving words left for you. They were very significant to me because my son was murdered 2 1/2 months before his first child was born. and I know that although he is adored by many, my grandson will also forever feel that void.

Rest In Peace
