Hi Tim thinking of you today as another officer joins you. Too many in the last month. Laurie and I were proud to honor Officer Moszer in his procession. And my daughter Sara went to school with Jason. Remembering all of you. And all the hard times you gave me. Miss you cousin

Grandpa, I often think of what you would be like if I ever had the chance to meet you. All I know is that you loved everyone around you and thats including the animals you brought home to mom, Tessa, and Neva. I always think of what it would be like if you were still here; animals all over grandma neva's house, taking us hunting, fishing, four wheeling, and so on. I would have loved to meet you, but god had other plans for you somewhere else. When the time comes, ill get to meet you and see why mom, tessa, and grandma always talk about you and share stories about you. I love you, even though I havent met you. Love you grandpa.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 23rd 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.

Time never dimishes respect.and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. I thank your family for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace

Sweetheart. Still miss you everyday. If only we could turn back time. I know you are watching over Tessa, Torrie and I as well as all of the family. I talk to you often and know you are by my side. So proud of all you did in your lifetime. You would be so proud of the girls and also of your grandchildren (once named for you). I will forever love and miss you and one day we will be together again. Love always-Neva

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Tim, You were my mentor when I first started with the Watford City Police Dept. You are a good friend and will always be with me as I do my job every day. The lessons you taught me were valuable in the past twenty six years as a police officer. You are missed but not forgotten.

Tim, Though it has been so many years, you have not been forgotten. You will always be remembered as a great friend, partner, and family man. And you will always remain in my mind and my heart for another reason. The day we learned of your death, I learned my wife was expecting our daughter. Out of death comes life. Miss you, brother.
