Your heroism and service is honored today, the 48th 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.

Time never dimishes respect and you will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace

I was talking to your daughter today about you and I thought I would leave a little note for you and your family.

She has been such a huge inspiration and help to me on our Memorial events and projects. She is always there when I need her and she keeps me on the path I need to be on. I know she does this for you and that makes her help even more meaningful. I wouldn't have made it this far without her and I will never forget her for it.

Your sacrifice will never be forgotten because people like your daughter honor your memory everyday. Rest in peace.
