Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the 69th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birthplace of my son.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 64 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Chief Williams,
On today, the 67th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served in the USMC.

Aldebert S. Williams was my grandfather. I never knew him, but I am proud of him. My mother died four years ago and this is the first information I've found about what happened to him. My mother never wanted to discuss it, it made her cry. I want to know more about him, but I may never find what I'm looking for. I am saddened that I have no photo of him, but I know he is remembered by his colleagues.
