Reflections for Patrolman William F. Smith

By recognizing the heroes of our past, we honor and appreciate the warriors of our present. Your heroism and service is remembered with gratitude today. We thank you for your courage and sacrifice. You gave your all to keep order. You put yourself in harm's way, standing between the citizens you swore to protect, and the evil that exists. Thank you for helping to make America a safer place. You live on in our memories as you continue to inspire. Time will never diminish our respect. You have not been forgotten, my brother. You will always be remembered. God bless you Patrolman Smith, and rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 30th 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.

Rest In Peace

An Angel in the Sky Must Leave His Place of Rest. Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest. For Duty has called, There is much work to do. Little did he know, This One is Dressed in Blue. Arriving on the Scene, He Knows Just What to Say,Follow me Fallen Brother, I'll Show you the Way, "Your Duty has Ended, Your Work is now Through," Come Hang Your Hat Beside mine, I'm A Cop Too.

God bless the Smith family
