Reflections for Policeman Michael Joseph McAndrews

Your son was my brother's best friend. He was a regular in our household growing up. You would have been most proud of him. He joined the LA Sheriff's Dept. and dedicated himself to creating a memorial that would finally acknowledge your heroism while off duty. He had your eyes. I believe he also had your heart. There were two Michael Joseph McAndrews that left a mark of true character in this world before they departed. I was lucky enough to know one of them. RIP

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd 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

You were that which others did not want to be. You went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do. You asked nothing from those who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted the fact of eternal loneliness should you fall. You have seen the face of terror and felt the stinging cold of fear. You have loved, cried, suffered, and hoped, but most of all, you have lived times others would say were “best forgotten.” At least you were able to say that you were proud of what you were - a cop.

Thank you, hero.
