Reflections for Chief Marshal Earle M. Platt

Dear Grandfather, we miss you deeply.

You knew my twin cousins, and I was born 8 months before you died. But now your loving family has expanded across America with 5 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren
, and 1 beautiful little great-great-granddaughter.

Although you only saw me once, I think, I see you every day now. Your proud portrait in your uniform hangs in our home in a place of honor where you can greet us all and remind us of the sacrifice you made for your community and family.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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
