Your heroism and service is honored today, the 94th 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 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.

Patrolman Reiser, today marks the 89th anniversary of your death at the hands of something one would scrape off one’s shoe. We can only hope that the responsible party faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless you and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
