Reflections for Officer Edward A. Rebel

35yrs today… and d@** does it still hurt to the core!
I know you are with me every step of the way in life - probably shaking your head in disbelief sometimes and the other times I know you are there at the finish line giving me one of those big boastful hugs you always gave.
Your generous heart, work ethic and memory lives on in so many of your brothers in blue - you would be so amazed how many reached out to just tell me that.
I am honored and proud to call you my Pop, but, F - what I’d do just to have with us for just a few minutes to say a proper goodbye and give you a huge hug!
I love you so much - we all do!

UGH - another year... and it just still doesn't get better. 29 years later and the pain is still as deep as the day we got the call you had been shot. My world ended that day... I was so broken and today feels no different.
One of your uniforms hangs in my closet. Everyday I think "love you" - today I just want to grab it and have you in it! To feel the pain in arms when your vest used to pinch it - I want to ask you if you caught any bad guys today - what I would do to have one more second with you.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

25 years!! I was thinking today of how many things we have missed sharing, kids, grandkids and great grand kid. We have wonderful memories of you, and talk about you often. It is still hard to be without you, I will always miss you and love you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 24th anniversary year 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

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you. I thank your family and friends for shring their devotion to you through their reflections.

Another year!! Never a day goes by without thinking of you, you are always in my heart. Talia was right about the laughter and the tears. Watching the movie of all the photos we have of you, always with a kid or dog on your lap. I miss you and I will always miss you.

dangit another year goes by.
hard to believe its been so long. still hasn't gotten any easier.
we laughed about you a lot today which was nice, then of course followed by a good cry. can't help that part.
i know you are a part of everything i just wish you were here in the flesh so we could see you laugh at all the silly things we do!
you are my protector and always will be. i agree with Lt White whole heartedly!
i read the newspaper articles again today, so sad.
i'm sure you are as proud of us as we are of you!
we will never forget you! love you

... not much to say...
just wish I could give you a hug.



June 28, 2011

Another year. It is hard to believe that 23 years ago you were killed. It doesn't get any easier, there will always be an empty space in my soul. We should be sharing all the joys of our family, it is heartbreaking to think of all the things you have missed. Everyday your name is mentioned by one or other of the family. When I am with my sister and brother-in -law, Gill and Ton we often wonder what would have been. It is so sad, I miss you so much.
