Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

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. Rest In Peace

Patrolman Williams,
On today, the 49th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of New Mexico. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Bennie, A year before your tragic death, while living in Las Cruces, you and your wife Rita, and your children were our neighbors. On a dark winter night my mother and I were trying to return from El Paso. We became delayed in bad weather on I-10. You noticed we hadn't made it home and at a late hour you came looking for us, and found us. That's the kind of officer and gentleman you were, and that is how you and your family will always be remembered. Thank you. For my Mom,(Agnes-now deceased) and myself, it was an honor to know you. God bless you. Rest in Peace.

Patrolman Williams, thank you for your service and dedication. It makes me sad to think that your own department has forgotten your sacrifice. You will never be forgotten by your family. Rest in peace.
