Your heroism and service is honored today, the 87th 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.

Patrolman Smith,
On today, the 83rd anniversary of your murder, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Kingsport. At least your murderer never got to walk as a free man again and died in prison.
