Your heroism and service is honored today, the forty-fifth 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 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.

No fellow Los Angeles County law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.

Sgt. Ballard.-I attended your grandsons funeral today and learned about you. I know in my heart that you were in heaven with open arms last friday to embrace Kyle and welcome him home. I know in my heart that you are both watching over Laurie, the boys, and the rest of the family. I pray that you help heal everyone's broken heart down here. Both you and Kyle are truly heros and I appreciate your service. You and Kyle are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace.
