Chicago Run to Remember will take place on April 30, 2011. I will be running with the name of my uncle, Sgt Jim Severin, murdered on July 17, 1970 and also Sgt Shine, who is the grandfather of a US Marine I met who lives in Glenview, Jack Shine. Jack flew in WWII. My family will honor both SGTs who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 105th 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.

Rest In Peace

On the 104th anniversary of Sergeant Shine's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Sergeant Shine is not forgotten.
