To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 50th anniversary year 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

You would be so proud of what I have done with my life! Lynda Marie

No fellow California law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.

Although it's been many years since your still deserve a reflection. Any Officer lost needs to be remembered. Thank you for your service.

"The Badge"
I come in many sizes,
In many shapes I'm made;
I'm on a shirt or in a case,
Or by other means displayed.
I've stood for many things, you know,
Throughout my many years;
I've reflected hero's faces,
And been wet with widow's tears.
I've been scratched and sometimes tarnished,
I've been repaired along the line;
But with steadfast duty as my brush,
I have kept my honor's shine.
I tell the world of my intent,
And all who see me know,
That whoever wears me, knows the way
That their life has to go.
I'm the symbol that they call the "badge,"
I'm an emblem held in awe;
And to those who try to live by right,
I represent the law.
But no matter what I'm made of -
Be it silver, tin, or gold,
I stand for things the same today
As I did in days of old.
