To the family of this brave officer!
I used to call on stores on the Rez for 13 years. I remember when this assault took place as it was an area I traveled many times.
Totally senseless.
May God Bless and comfort you all!

Each day I drive by your memorial whether on watch or on my way to town. I look at your memorial and remind myself of what we do. As a substation officer where your watch ended I pray that you walk beside me and guide me through. Will you always be remembered through k'e and the life you've lived.

what words shall we use to describe our lost, our hurt. We miss you so much,. We all do our best to live by the examples, teaching that you have left us with. But in fear of letting you down we go so far in hopes that it pleases you. We love and miss you so, we only wish to make you proud of what we do. Our lives were never the same since the day you were taken from us, but we live each day in hopes that you remain apart of us all. We keep you in our hearts and memories, but that will never compare to to having you here with us. Dad we miss and love you so much. Continue to keep watch over us.

Hey Brother,
I have to talk to you here, I am to far from your resting place to visit.
For some reason I have you on my mind a lot in resent days. It has been so long since you were taken from us, but seems like it was yesterday. I sat in my boys room telling them stories about you and I in Kayenta and Pinon, while listening to "Knocking on Heavens Door". It hurts, but is also some what comforting to remember the stories and pass them onto my children and hopefully they will in turn pass them on and you will always be part of us.

Shi naii (my brother),

16 yrs. had passed since you were taken from us, but I relive that terrible day and the notification of your lost. There is not a time, special occasions, holidays and especially family gatherings that your lost is most felt.
But knowing how proud you were to wear the uniform and serve your people helps in dealing with your lost. You served honorably and your memory lives in those that you touched.
You are truly Missed and never forgotten brother, as all those that made same sacrifice. Now you serve besides the Great Spirit, your light blesses us this day. Thank you brother.

Brother, former Officer-NDPS

You were my best back up little brother, that's why I always called you my little brother, even tho we'er in Navajo Police uniform, because you were always there to assist me when I was with kayenta western area substation police officer, "Thank You Little Brother." your memory lives and "Thank you for your service."

Rest In Peace

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

"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.
