Reflections for Trooper Robert F. Rulong

I lived in the 'log' house beside the road where the accident occured. I was a little girl when this happened. I remember looking out the window at all the flashing lights and sirens. My dad, G.E. Davis, went outside to see if he could be of any help. It was right after dad went outside that the woman hit Trooper Rulong's car. Daddy came running back into our house and got a blanket (or two) telling my mother that the trooper was hurt and he needed to keep him warm. He later told us he died almost immediately. My dad and mom often wondered what ever happened to his family. I pray that they were able to have a happy life.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 53rd 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.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 104 years.

Rest In Peace
