Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I said a little prayer today for Principal Keeper Beckwith and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Principal Keeper Beckwith and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Principal Keeper Beckwith has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.

To the family and friends of Principal Keeper Beckwith, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Principal Keeper Beckwith is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
