I never knew you Ralph, but as a fellow Police Officer you were my brother. I have read all of the reflections left for you and just want to say that I'm praying for God's Love, Peace and Comfort to be with your family, friends and all who knew you. Rest easy, We have the watch.

A Hero now in Heaven, always remembered and never forgotten.
Ralph, Back when I was in high school I never imagined that our families would be joined by the commonality of the loss of our officers. I know your probably up in Heaven telling my son what kind of a student I was and how I got in trouble sometimes. Keep watch over your wife and daughter, you would be so proud of both of them.

I remember you so well from my childhood in Ross Township and I especially recall your beautiful smile. Another neighbor, Martha Stark, told me that when I lost both of my parents 3 weeks apart she told you how I handled the hurt and pain and that it seemed to help you when you lost your parents. I hope I did help you in some way, Ralph, because you are a true hero in every sense of the word!

On this National Police Memorial Day I am remembering the year you were honored and our little daughter Mandy and I were in Washington D.C. to place the carnation on the Memorial Wreath in Honor and Loving Memory or your Ultimate Sacrifice! We love and miss you as do many of our friends and family! Never forgotten!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 21rst 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.

Time never diminishes respect, and 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. I hold your family in my heart's embrace today. Judith, thanks for sharing a wife's devotion to her beloved husband.

.Rest In Peace

Here we are approaching that dreaded day in January that you were taken from us. I miss you and think of you every day.
God must have needed another angel. It seems like yesterday yet it seems like forever since I have held you. You were the BEST Father, Husband, Friend and Police Officer! Please keep watch over Mandy and her husband Eli. I know you are watching over me. "I could have missed the pain but then I'd have had to miss....The Dance"!

Soon it will be two decades since you were called away from duty. I know that during that time those that love you dearly have thought of you each and every day. The first thought they have when they wake each morning is of you and the last thought before drifting off to sleep at night is of you.
"If people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them. Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever." Author Unknown

Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones, you will never be forgotten.

Honey I miss you still and think of you every day.
You would be proud of our daughter she has come a long long way. She is in Graduate School now working on her Masters Degree. She graduated in April from Pitt and I just know you were beaming down on her with such pride.
You should know that you are her hero!

"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.
