I only know you through the memorial softball game as my father is Michael Rager, the firefighter who the game is also in memory of. I know first hand the sacrifice you have given and the family that is left behind. The pain never goes away, it just gets pushed to the back of your mind as life goes on. Praying for all of your family as life goes on for them, but you are never forgotten. Thank you for your service!

My father, Larry, is Kenny's wife's 1st cousin. He is now 78 years old and still gets choked up when he talks about losing Kenny. It takes a lot to move my father to tears, which shows how losses like this never completely heal.

We owe tremendous gratitude to officers who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe, and to their families who suffer beyond measure when lives are taken in the line of duty.

To honor my friend., Tami...daughter of Kenneth. My father was an officer in Fort Wayne as well as my uncle. (Both retired) What a loss it was for you and your brothers and mother. He is a hero ...and we need to remember this, especially now in 2016.-I wish I could have been a better friend to you , Tami. We do grow up and look back and feel ashamed. God Bless. rb

Thanking my Uncle Kenny for his service is an understatement for the amount of sacrifice made as his life was taken in the line of duty. Absolution comes to me only in the thoughts that he’s left the joy & pain, the love & heartache within this world, and has returned to a Heavenly home with our Father in Heaven and I feel a Mother in Heaven also, and yes (for those of us who believe) Jesus Christ, who love and missed see him during his journey here on earth. Absolution to the young family that would grow up without their father and husband, I can only hope it offered some form of strength to pull them through life with deeper understanding of just how precious life is, so don’t waste a minute. That somehow by drawing upon their experience, they were able to aid someone (or many, yes me too) who would not have done so well without their help and empathy. My thoughts offer little resilience to them, but their ability to overcome this tragedy and continue to move forward speaks with great authority as I say, some give a little, many give some, but this family gave all. I love you Aunt Myrna, Steve, Tami, Kevin, Randy, Douglas, Dennis, and yes Uncle Kenny!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the forty-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.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you for I know both their pain and pride are forever.

Dad,

Well, we lost the game tonight. It's nice when we win, but either way, I am just so grateful that your memory lives on through this annual memorial softball game. I met one of the men tonight who was responsible for getting this game started originally. I thanked him for his effort, and assured him we all were very appreciative.

This Sunday will be 36 years since God called you home. Such a long time, yet I just can't get past it. I hate sitting here crying like a baby, but I hurt so bad. I love you and miss you so much.

Anyway, I just found this site tonight (Doug actually gave me the site), so this is my first message. Perhaps not appropriate, but I just felt like publicly stating how I feel. I hope I don't embarrass you (or the family) too much.

With Love and Respect,

Your Son, Kevin
