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.

UGH....

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.

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!

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.

just got home from the memorial in washington dc - wow - as if you haven't been gone all these years. still the smell of you fresh in my nose. the way your vest hurt my arms as i gave you a hug when you came home - the sound of "how was your day today pop - catch any bad guys?" ring thru my ears. how it still hurts... oh man... how it still hurts. all i can say is "POP - I MISS YOU"
