My grandfather is my role model in life. I never met him, but he lives in my heart. I wish I had been there for him. How this murderer was acquitted is beyond me.
I also lost my nephew, Robert Clark, to a murderer with a gun. Robbie was a fun guy and a great family man. I will never forget my sister's broken heart.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 98th 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.

I was proud to serve on the same police department as my great grandfather. Ironically, this history was unknown at the time I was hired because I was orphaned and four years of age. I would follow in his shoes as a Pittsburgh officer and discovered that I was a direct descendant by his family relatives from Ohio who tracked me down. Officer Clark, was my first cousin who was killed in the line of duty in Cleveland. He wanted to be an officer after meeting me and watching me on several episodes of COPS conducting narcotics suppression. He was conducting the same type of narcotics detail as I when he was killed in the line of duty. I retired from Pittsburgh after 30 years in 2004.

Dear Great Grandfather,
We will be always proud of you. We heard stories of you growing up and we all have your police pictures. We also understood the impact that a death of a police officer has on a family for a long time. Your death led to police getting death benefits. That was important. Your Great Grandsons' (Detective Rob Clark) death led to changes too for all in law enforcement. Both of you were not meant to be with this world long but both of you have a footprint in the sand for all others to follow and be thankful for.
Love ,
Mary Elizabeth Clark Forbes

I salute you for your service. I visited your grand son's refelction page, he also was killed in the line of duty 84 years after you. I know he is now with you and you are able to exchange stories of how police work use to be during the turn of the centry. Both of you keep watch over the loved ones left behind, also those still out on patrol. You are both heroeos and heroes never die.
