To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 12th anniversary year 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

I left Law Enforcement about 10 years ago, but went to the Police Academy with Lewis in 1997. I just learned of his death today after being invited to an online group of our class.

Please extend my best wishes to his family, friends and fellow officers. I have very good memories of Lewis and am very saddened to hear of the news, however late.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

Lewis,

You were a wonderful man. I am so sadden by the fact that you didn't live to see the wonderful young man that our son has grown to be. I know that you are watching over him. We miss you dearly, and not a day goes pass that you are not thought of. Till we meet again....

June 4 2000 was the day apart of me died. My uncle (Lewis D.Sr.) raised us as sisters and brothers. Every year we would always make our family reunion reservations together so that one would make sure the other go. And everyday we would talk to each other so that one would know the other was alright. I remember 3 weeks before you got killed you told me life was to short to be miserable and unhappy to live life to the fullest. You discribed your funeral just like it was.Friday June 2 you told me that you were going to shoot me with a 9mm gun. Saturday June 3 you played dmx song one more road to cross one more step to take over and over again. You told me in so many ways that you was leaving me but I didn't figure it out until you were gone.I feel so along without him beside me. I miss him so much and I'm looking forward to seeing him again on the other side. I love you. Respect in Peace

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE, REST IN PEACE.

"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.
