My great grandfather, you were long before my time, but your story and your heroism lives on. You're a constant presence in the life of my family in the memorial wreath proudly hanging over our mantle. My daughter, also the child of a Texas law enforcement officer, recounts your story in her school projects. My soldier sons have your bravery. You are a proud reminder of why our friends and other members put on the badge every day and face evil and do the good they do. Thank you for your sacrifice. ❤

Your great granddaughter,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 84th 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
