Reflections for Detective I Abiel "Abe" Barron

I visited the National Law Enforcement Memorial 2 days ago. I went there to look at your name on the wall, Abe. I think of you so often, as do all of your friends and partners.
You are missed, buddy.

Hi Daddy,

Today marks 14 years that you have been gone. My heart has healed as much as it can, but the memories and laughter you gave me have and will never fade. Though you are not here physically it brings me so much joy that we still talk everyday spiritually and when you get a break from all your new friends you have made in heaven, you still visit me in my dreams occasionally. You will never be forgotten daddy and I promise to continue to be your biggest fan and advocate. One day we will meet again, but for now I thank you for watching over me and my son Preston who I know you love so much.

I love you always, always.
-Your little champion.

** Thank you everyone who has written something on this page showing my father respect and love.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the ninth anniversary year 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 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 that call you beloved for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I thank them for sharing their memories of you through their reflections.

Today marks the 7 year anniversary of your tragic death. A year ago I had the oppurtunity to visit the Police Officer Memorial at our State Capital. I read your name there and it reminded me of just how fragile each one of our lives are. I will continue to pray for your family and hope that each day gets better in time.

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.

I sometimes used Highway 138 as a shortcut, while heading out to Las Vegas from Lancaster. I have not driven that highway since the tragic traffic collision involving my Northeast Area brothers. Some say, it is "one of the deadliest highways in the U.S."

Detective Barron was one of those LAPD cops who I never heard anyone say anything badly when discussing him.

May You Rest-In-Peace.

Detective Barron and Family,
Today I am thinking of you on this fourth anniversary. I thank you for having the courage it takes to serve the citizens of L.A. and citizens everywhere. It truly takes a dedicated person, and the family that stands behind you, to put yourself on the line every day to make the world better. Your sacrifice is always remembered, and is particularly close to me, as my father (retired law enforcement) passed into eternity the same day, same year, as you. You are remembered today. You will be remembered forever.

G-d bless you and your loved ones.

Abe, I think about you often. Your life touched many of us. Anyone that had the pleasure of knowing you smiles and knows what I mean. I especially remember our white water rafting trip. You kept me up all night, but you also kept me smiling the whole trip. I miss you and I keep you in my daily prayers. Rest in peace my brother.

May you Rest in peace and may Our Lord keep your family in His Loving Care now and in the future.
