Your heroism and service is honored today, the 44th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Two days ago two dedicated young officers lost their lives , we hear this too often here in Tampa Bay, losing one is too many. It brings the memory of you back to me, and I realized I'm your age now, but day's like this make me feel Like a child again, day's like this. You have not been forgotten and you never will.

I served proudly with your nephew Bill on the Long Branch Police Department for ten years. He is by far one of the most honorable men I've ever met. I have no doubt you'd be proud of him. It was an honor and a priviledge to work along side of him.
