It has been over 4 years since I left a reflection on your page. I still read the tributes and although I have never met you, it is clear that you were a loving husband, a great father and an excellent officer. You will never be forgotten..

Bart, I don't make it to LaPlace hardly at all over these past few years. I have been to the memorial in Washington D.C. twice and looked you up and reflected for a moment and prayed for your family.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifteenth 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 for your selfless and distinquished service to our country. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace
