Reflections for Detective Joseph A. Perkins

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and tenth 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 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.

This is a loss that will never be forgotten. Hours have turned into days, days turned into weeks, weeks into months and months into years but, the difference that this officer made will last forever.

We lost Our Deputy Morris Taylor on September 14, 2002. When he joined you and the other Angels in Blue.

God Bless Our Law Enforcement Officers and Those Who Love Them.
