To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th 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 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.

Dear Baby Patti:
I didn't know Anthony, obviously, because died the year my mother was born, but I believe he was married to Aunt Mal who was a good friend of Henrietta Retkowski, your great-gramdmother, also mother to your Grandfather Don and your Uncle Frank. I'm your Aunt Elaine, and I did hear Grandma Henrietta speak of your Uncle Tony. I believe he was your Great-Grandfather Frank's younger brother. And of course, you were named after my mother Patricia Anne Corbett. Ask Grandpa Don about him. I believe the response directly prior to mine here in the reflections listing is from your cousin Paula Sewell, who is the daughter of Aunt Jan and Uncle Frank, because she alerted me to this website. Uncle Frank is your Grandpa Don's brother. Happy New Year Baby Patti.
