I just had to turn around and stop by the Fallen Heroes Memorial in Pontiac yesterday. I saw your name there. I simply can't believe you have been gone over nine years. Saw Gary Priess's name, too. I guess Doug didn't get on the wall because he was on his way to work, but he should be there too. Three good men. It is hard knowing you all went so young, and how fast the years go by, brothers. Time goes by like we're standing still. You live through us. We remember.

Missing you like crazy, I know you and Dad are turning over in your graves with all that is going on. Shame on all of the fools who don't see what is really going on. I won't give up what we worked for. I hug Erl for you everyday. We will remain strong for each other. Love you!

Hey Perry, we just had our annual training at our department and your name was mentioned. They asked by show of hands who knew Perry Fillmore. Proudly, I raised my hand.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the eighth 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 all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your wife and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

you have been on my mind so much lately. These neices and nephews of ours are growing up so fast and you would be so proud of them. You impacted their lives so much and there following in your footsteps. I'm not surprised, just proud that even though your not here they talk and tell stories like it was yesterday. I'm so grateful for that. I love you and miss you, always

love your wife, bobby

Hey Bird Dog,
We lost another brother. After recently reconnecting with many of our 534th brothers on facebook we were planning a reunion. A short time later Russell "Licker" Lillie was taken from us in car accident. I've been in touch with many of the guys from our old unit. Bergers, Leon, Chicken Hawk, and Hamilton to name a few. I've decided to invite them all to Chicago this fall so we can remember our bothers with honor. It won't be the same without the platoon comedians. I have some old video of us goofing off around the barracks so you will still be able to make us laugh! Wish you were here with us, but in many ways I know you still are.

As time goes by it never really does get any easier to know that someone like you is no longer with us here. You are still to this day greatly missed by all. I am still overwhelmed by the fact that Doug is up there with you now. Tell Doug that he is missed and thought of alot, just as you are. This is for you both

~ Protecting Us Below ~
On the day they found you there, your life was taken without a care. As every brother and sister arrived, uncontrollably we wept, we cried.

Knowing we have to make a start, to fill the void deep within our heart. Even tho' you have left us behind, you'll always be with us in heart, spirit and mind.

Reunited one day we shall be, No longer victims on the 'Streets of Misery'. But til' the day we meet again, I will cherish the memories of my brother, my friend.

Not gonna' sit and cry, instead I will smile...lookin' up to the sky. You'll be up where all angels in blue go, protecting your brothers and sisters below.

Hey U!
6 weeks ago you got to have my best friend join you in heaven... Perry, I miss him!! Not a minute goes by that I don't think about him or remember something about him!!! I was still waiting for this time thing to make things easier from when you were taken from us! I'm not sure who came up with 'It will get better in time' but they lied!! It doesn't!! However, whoever said 'Only the Good die Young' they were right!! I'm guessing God has a plan which is why he took you and Douggie away from us way to soon.... I only wish I knew what that plan was!!!
My heart breaks a little more each day... Things are so much different without you and him here! They will never be the same again!
I hope you guys are up there in Heaven hanging out with eachother... And I hope you guys will continue to watch over all us every day!!! I love you both and miss you both so very much!!
Perry... Tell Douggie I love him!

Uncle Perry,
Sitting up late tonight reminiscing of the good old days with you and Frank. We miss you so much. It's hard to believe it's been over 5 years. You touched our lives and we think of you always. Wish you were here. Miss having coffee at The Wheel. Thank you for ALL of the great memories. They mean so much. You will NEVER be forgotten. WE LOVE YOU!

I want to say Thank You to all of you who wear the uniform and tell you how strong and brave you all are! My daughter's boyfriend died 05/17/2009 at the age of 18 and then my fahter died 06/18/2009 and Doug Alward was there to console my family and then the night of my fathers funeral my cousin was killed in a car accident on francis road and then I heard about Doug. I know that Doug and Perry were great friends and I feel so sorry for all of your losses and I want you to know that I am praying for your pain to lighten and I also wanted everyone in the department to also know that you are all hero's! The pain I have been feeling lately is unbearable and all I can do is pray it will get better. You are all so brave and you will always and forever be admired and respected by me! May God Bless you and keep you ALL safe!
