Little Brother,

You know I am a very private, yet very social person. Tonight, just over 13 years after you moved on, I am deciding to send a shout out to you or on your behalf. God Bless those who serve! I miss you. I love you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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 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 pray for solace for all those who love and miss
.you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I hold your family in my heart's embrace today. How your children must miss your loving and beautiful smail and your father's guidance. Your daughter's reflections show a devoted daughter who misses her daddy.

It's still hard after all these years to wake up everyday knowing I can't talk to you, see you, or even hear your voice. It's going on a eleven years tomorrow since God called you home. Your still the best father I know! You will never leave my heart. I wish you were here to see me off to prom, graduate from college, and to see you first grandchild. However God need you more but he has blessed us with an angel, who looks down on us everyday. Love you daddy

Your daughter,

After 8 years it's still hard to believe that you are gone. I think about you everyday. I miss all the times we spent together. I have decided to follow in your footsteps, which I'm pretty sure you already know. I 'm majoring Criminal Justice at Troy University. I hope to make you and the rest of the family proud. I Love You Daddy and will always miss you. Your Daughter,Kizzi

Forgive me for missing the anniversary of your E.O.W., but I felt as though I could not continue to read about so many tragedies. I now realize the visit each day to leave a word of encouragement and hope to the loved ones of others, helps me to remember that I am not alone with my pain and heartbreak. So may I say to your friends and loved ones that my thoughts and prayers are with them now and always. Continue to keep watch over them and those still out on patrol and may they know you will never be forgotten.

"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.
