I look forward to meeting you one day. I know Grama Pete is happy to be with you again. I am proud to have such a brave great-grandfather. Your family still remembers you and will continue to do so.

As a grandson of Wyatt Luther Nugent, I thank all of you for your reflections. I do have a question for MSgt. Henry Harris, though. Would you, sir, still have that saddle? I would dearly love to see it. I know this is rather late (Sept. 2015) but if there is way to contact each other, I would love to do so. Again, thank you all.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th 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.

Thank you for your service and devotion, Sir. I grew up on stories about you. My great-grandfather was one of the range riders loading the cattle that day, and he was also present when the slayer was apprehended. He later purchased your saddle from your widow to provide some supporting funds for her and your orphans. I have it now and ride it occasionally. I trust you rest in peace.

Another year has passed and you are still admired and respectfully remembered in the hearts and minds of so many. My thoughts and prayers are with your loved ones and friends on this anniversary of your EOW. You will never be forgotten.
