Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and eleventh anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherishted 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 honor your name, service and sacrifice. I would often think of you when I was a Richmond, VA Policeman, walking "W-1", the downtown foot beat . . . and I would walk across 5th Street on Broad . . . I thought of it as sacred territory as it was there you were murdered protecting the citizens of Richmond. You will not be forgotten my brother. Jim Crotty (Former Richmond, VA Policeman).
