Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

He is my great-grandfather. My mother is his granddaughter. I remember standing at his gravesite when I was 13. There was a small American flag on his gravesite. I appreciated then that an American flag was there and appreciate that a placard is there now. Thank you very much.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd 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.

I believe this is my great grandfather. Growing up, my father told us his grandfather was a policeman and was killed by the "Purple Gang" in Chicago. My father was Donald David Bastendorf. His father was Harry Hurbert Bastendorf. My brother is Douglas Bruce Bastendorf and is a retired police officer in Panama City, FL. My name is Sharon (Sherri) Anne Bastendorf Bell and I live in Pensacola, FL.
