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.

O.P.,


You touched the lives of so many of us around you.  You were a friend to all and made those around you laugh and smile.  I, too, remember your funeral.  I remember the feeling I had when I saw all of those people holding their hands over their hearts and holding their hats in their hands as the procession passed.  It brought back to me that there are still people who respect us, as law enforcement officers. It broke my heart that it took that day, your funeral, for me to see that there is still good in those around us.  You are greatly missed and will always be in our hearts, our thoughts and our jobs.  Thank you!

I remember the day of your funeral. As the procession rolled down Airport Boulevard thousands of citizens lined the street to pay their respects for the years of service you had given to the people of Mobile. At your graveside service the honor guard struggled to fight back tears. I know that you are in heaven now watching over all those officers still left behind. One day we'll all be reunited in heaven. What a glorious day that will be!

It has been a long time, but it still seems like yesterday. I still get tears in my eyes when I think about you. Buddy, you are still sorely missed. I am waiting for the day we can ride our Harleys together in heaven.

Your partner and little buddy.
