Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninety-first 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.

This is only the second reflection you've received. This memorial page came along long after anyone you knew passed away and hence, other than decendants who may not even know of the exsistance of this page, there is no one to leave a message. But rest assured, your memory lives on, Lieutenant Smith. You gave your life in the performance of your duty and that counts for so much, not only down here, but also up in heaven where you no doubt now sit.

Rest in Peace, Lieutenant, you've earned that rest.
