I'm washing my dishes .Tears streaming down my face wondering how my world is gonna be without your friendship.
To this day the loss is unbearable.

The young man who selfishly took you from us had no idea the impact of his action and didn't care.
He will twist and turn in the flames .....Joyce.....Twist and turn.
I love you....I miss you.....I will see you again.....But not yet.......

Your heroism and service is honored today, the tenth 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.

Hey Joyce! I just read a reflection on how they felt as if they were in a time warp. It seems like yesterday when we were talking in the back of HQ about buying our first houses and how excited we were and now you have been gone almost 10 years. I miss you Joyce to have served with you was an honnor. With Love, The Commander.

I thought that this young lady was a young man,when we first met at CSB. Community Service Bureau. She quickly corrected me as to she being a female. We became very good friends as she would be always willing to respond to the Housing Projects to assit in aiding in Processing of Detainies. We miss all the jokes and all the laughs that we shared I still pass your Memorial As I drive to my office In Livingston. It seems as if we went through a time Warp But you are Truly missed and Love. The Orange Police Department has become a better department since that sad day we lost many and gained some. But it was you .. you were that angle that was sent to make change.. love you miss you truly.

If Roses Grow in Heaven
Lord Please Pick a Bunch for Me
Place Them in My Friend's Arms
And Tell Her They're from Me
Tell Her I Love and Miss Her
And When She Turns to Smile
Place a Kiss upon Her Check
And Hold Her for Awhile
Because Remembering Her is Easy
I Do it a Thousand Times a Day
But There's an Ache Within My Heart
That Will Never Go Away.

"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.

Before every shift I check the ODMP and read the story of the featured hero. Thank you sister for your service and sacrifice. In reading your reflections I see that you touched many people deeply and served with honor and valor. Rest in peace now and put in good word with the real Chief for all of us.

While I did not know you, even though I am sure you attended my father's wake, I know the impact you had on my brother's life (a fellow City of Orange Police Officer) and I truly thank you for that....based on the stories of you that he has shared with his family you are exceptional person that I know he still misses to this day. God bless you and your family.

P.S. Thank you for protecting us each day whether it be in uniform or in spirit!!!

Joyce, I love you. I miss that smile of yours around HQ. I keep hearing you say "I wish I was home on my deck even though I don't have any furniture on it yet." That was the last time I heard your voice. You will ALWAYS be remembered and LOVED. We will will make sure your Mom will be alright. : - )

Joyce,
What can I say about how you touched my life. Not a day goes by that I do not remember you. I remember when I first got out of the police academy and walked Post 9 while you walked Post 10. You always said stay out of trouble when I left 150, and I always got in trouble. So you stopped saying it, even when I begged you to say it. You have not left us in vain. Your lessons will not be forgotten. I am proud to say that I knew you and learned from you. We will meet again someday. I miss you.
