Reflections for Police Officer Randall James Spearman

Officer Spearman,
On today, the 20th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

It’s almost that time of year again. This year will make #23. Cannot believe it has been that long. I know your spirit is alive and well and all around our place guarding the horses, especially that one! Yep she is still around. We think of you all the time and miss you stopping in to check on us during bad weather. I thank God for allowing me to meet and be acquainted with such a good person. Until we meet again.

You were more than a friend you were a a real hero to us. You gave so unselfly and saved so many lives of battered women. It was the years with the Sheriffs office that your light shined so bright. You tried to retire but when you heard your brothers were short handed you didn't hesitate to put on the uniform and help out in Folsom. It's there were God took you home to be a true angel. If we just had the time to say goodbye but that wouldn't be enough. Your personality drew people into to you because of your kind heart that was just natural. You are what a real man is. Jimmy and I are both honored to say we knew you we loved you and called you our friend. We still love you so much and miss our fishing buddy. Until we meet again Randy.

I can't believe you've been an angel so long already. Memories of you linger every day. I still remember the phone call in the middle of the night, the heart-wrenching service here and at the cemetery. You will be remembered forever.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventh 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. I pray for solace for your family members as I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

"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.

On this anniversary of Officer Spearman's tragic passing, I know this is a difficult day. Some days I bet it feels like it's been forever; other days, it feels like just yesterday he was coming around the corner or showing up for roll call.

Officer Spearman's family and friends - you are not alone and he is not forgotten.

Randy - I still think of you sometimes & forget that you're gone. I'll NEVER forget coming on duty the morning after your accident and hearing them say on the radio that you were gone. I really enjoyed knowing you, you were a kind soul and always had pleasant things to say. You were taken too soon.

Everyday that I live my life i sit and watch my mother cry over the angel that God sent in to our lives. Randall Spearman was my stepdad but I lived him as my biological father as well as my best friend. Nobody could ask for a better person to have in their life. He loved people and helped who ever crossed his path with problems. I will miss him so much. I know he will always be in our hearts. I love you Randy(woogie)!
