Miranda,

I was very young when I last saw your father and barely remember him....my older sister and mother remember him better - but I remember your mother like it was yesterday - I just found a photo with her in it the other day. I am Neta, your mother was one of my first cousins. I have not seen you three girls since you were very young and living at your mom's house with my Aunt and Uncle. Your grandparents, which were my Aunt Dorathy and Uncle Tom Eldon, were our favorites. I miss those days when they were part of our family. So long ago.

I hope you girls, now grown women, are all well and hope that you have a good and happy life.

You may reach me at [email protected] if you wish.

My warmest regards,

Neta Brasher
Cousin by marriage

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 38th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections

Although you must have said it,
At least a thousand times,
Never did I hear it,
But it's always on my mind.

And I know you must have felt it,
So very deep and strong,
Because I feel it now,
And have for so very long.

I wish that I could tell you,
Or once hear you tell me,
Three little words that haunt me,
And just won't let me be.

I know I never met you,
But what I feel is true.
I hope you also felt,
The way I feel for you.

I think about you always,
And dream of your embrace.
And in the night I cry,
Because I'll never touch your face.

But one day when we meet,
Up in the sky so blue.
I'll finally get to say,
"Daddy, I love you."

Happy Father's Day

"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.
