I am deeply touched by the kind words left by people who never knew my Uncle Joe, especially by those who have lost a loved one themselves. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ms. Phyllis Loya, Mom of Officer Larry Lasater and Mr. James Sheppard Father of Sgt. Jason L. Sheppard. Thank You so much to everyone!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd 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 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. I m certain you are proud that your family has continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace.

This brave man was my mother Joan Scott's uncle and my great-uncle. Even though I never met him I heard the story of his death while growing up and always had a place in my heart for him. He was too young when he was taken from his wife and child. I know that God has blessed him with eternal life and someday I hope to meet him in heaven.

Joe was my uncle but died many years before I came into this world. My father did not talk too much about him but I knew he loved his older brother and was deeply hurt by his murder. My father always called me Joe and when he passed away he had Uncle Joe's photo in his wallet. He had that photo in his wallet for just over seventy years. Rest in peace Uncle Joe!

Judgment Day for a NYC Patrolman

.....Author Unknown

The Patrolman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, Patrolman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my Church have you been true?"

The Patrolman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
Can't always be a Saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my work was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep,
I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the Throne
Where the Saints had often trod.
As the Patrolman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, Patrolman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

Joseph F Scott was my fathers uncle. When I was a kid I used to tell my father that I wanted to be a cop. My father would tell me the story of how his uncle died in the line of duty.During my twenty plus years in the Dept. I often thought of Joseph and what would have become of him had he not been killed so early in life. God bless you Joseph. My son Jonathan is with the FBI, Bless him too.
