Reflections for Correctional Officer Joseph B. Waldrupe

Rest in Peace

I ask one thing - that in still, far-off days,
Someone who knew me should in their daily rounds,
Suddenly pause, caught by some sight or sound,
Some glance, some phrase, some trick of memory's ways
which brings me to mind, then I shall wait,
eager with hope, perhaps to hear -
“how great if he were with us still!”
And then at the end, all that I wish for is just -
“he was my friend!”

From “A Soldier's Epitaph” by David McNicholl

Officer Waldrupe,
On today, the 108th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 108th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Joseph,

What a Heroic fight. Wounded and being attacked, you fought. You fought until the end to protect society. There is few things more noble that fighting for others that cannot fight for themselves.

You stood the line and now serve as Gods angle. Watch over all of us here fighting for other.

You are remembered today and thank you Sir for your service
