To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th 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.

Your sacrifice will never be forgotten Officer Woodland. Your gun battle has been passed down through the decades, and I have patrolled the same streets that you have and thought of your sacrifice often as I checked the businesses of Downey on dark lonely nights. Your police department no longer exists, but I have always thought of you as one of "us". Rest in peace.
