Thinking about you today. No amount of time could ever make us forget you courage and sacrifice for our country. We never seem to realize how lucky we are to have such men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line so we can be safe. Many thanks and may your legacy continue to live on the cops who currently serve today. RIP

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 76th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birthplace of my son. 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 diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered

You are truly a Pioneer---


Like each tiny grain of sand,through an hourglass
Our lives shift gently, without any definite
peroid of time,
Some of us soar slowly, like birds flying upon
feathery wings
While others seem to pass quickly, like fresh
grapes on a vine.

It is hard to tell your loved one good bye, if
only for a while
Though you know your souls later, will be forever
Missing their arms surrounding you, and their
face filling smile
Yet they're always there guiding you, if you're
open to their signs!

When you just can not picture, how life without
them could be
Tears filling your eyes, as a swelling stream
never ending,
If you just think about God's love, then you
suddenly will see
What one thinks of as death, is truly a life
peacefully beginning !!

So grieve as you must, but don't let it take away
your life
Given so preciously to us, from our Lord God up
Whether a Sister, brother, son, daughter,.....
husband or wife
Everyone is blessed by our Savior, with beautiful
eternal life!

For All Who Have Lost Their Loved One !

If God would grant me just one wish,
This is what I'd ask to do---
I'd ask to find the stairway to heaven---
Just to spend one last moment with you.

If I could find where heaven is---
I'd rush there and hold you all through the night,
I'd hold you tight and closer than close,
And, never let go until the morning light.

You went above and beyond the call of duty to aid a woman in distress. You heroism will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace Patrolman.
