Reflections for Lieutenant Norman Allard

Lieutenant Allard, it has been 45 years since you were taken from us. New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your military and law enforcement service.

Rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

To your daughter Mary Beth, your reflection is spot on regarding the way the police are treated today and yes, largely by our so called leaders. God bless you, your family and your brother always and especially during his tours of duty.

Dad, it’s hard to believe today marks 42 years ago you left us to be with our Heavenly Father. My heart aches me today like it did all those years ago. Dad, I’m so glad you are not here to see how some people and leaders treat our courageous police officers in our country today. It is incomprehensible and so wrong on every level. I was always so proud that my dad achieved the rank of lieutenant and my brother was also a Brother in Blue. I pray for all the good men and women of our police force throughout our country. Psalm 34:18-19

Happy Birthday Dad! So many years and birthdays have passed without you being with your family. Funny how a daughter never forgets her father. You live within my heart and my soul dad. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day. Missing you is the heartache that never goes away.

Uncle Norman,
You are still loved & missed by your faimly that surrives you.
This past weekend some of us (your neices & nephews) were gathered at a cookout. We passed around pictures, told stories, and watched a short old family video. The memories of our Allard relatives are still alive in our minds as well as our hearts. God Bless you Uncle Norman, you were way to young to have left this world. And the way you died was not fair to you or your faimly that loved you. Your neice ~SANDI~

I thank you Lieutenant Allard for the dedicated 23 years of service you gave to your community.
After reading the reflections on your page it reminded me of a homily I heard awhile back about babies in their Mothers womb how they are content, safe, and happy and the moment they are born the first thing they do is cry because everything is strange to them. Their world has been turned upside down and as their Mother and Father hug them they feel the love, contentment, safety and happiness as they did moments earlier. As you took your last breathe here on earth your Mother and Father were there to welcome you with open arms in Heaven and all the fears or unknowns you may or may not of felt in that second before you took your last breathe were washed away by all the love and happiness you now feel with Jesus and Mother Mary. Just as in the beginning of your life here on earth as in the end of your life you felt the joy and happiness of being Loved.
Even though life here on Earth is never long enough your life with Jesus will never end.
God Bless your Family.

Happy Father's Day Dad. There's not a Father's Day (after 35 years) that passes by that I don't remember and miss your kind smile, your hugs, laughter and jokes. I miss you!
Love you Dad,

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 35th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. 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 for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections. I am sure that you are proud that your son continued your legacy of protecting and serving and that he has had such a distinguished career.

It was Thanksgiving yesterday, another holiday without you. I should be used to not having you in my life after all these years, but not having you here to celebrate with us is still painful. Dad, you're a great-grandfather once again to a beautiful little boy named Dominic Anthony. Your son Gary is a grandfather now!!! You would be so proud of your son, grandson and great grandson. It breaks my heart that you are not here to see them, although I know that are looking down from heaven watching over them. I love you Daddy. Missing you always! Love, Mary Beth

John 16:22
So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
