Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

It’s been 10 years that you’ve been gone. You were my rock and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.

In coming here to your webpage today I'm realizing how long it's been since I've come here. I admit I feel a bit guilty that I don't to that, nor do I do many of the ritual, standard, or public things that others do. I guess maybe I should apologize, but for me personally my grieving has changed. I'm not a big anniversary, birthday type of person when it comes to you (although I know you have one coming in a few days). Over the years I've found just living life there are so many things that remind me of you and the time we had together has a family and as father and daughter. I seldomly get on a treadmill and not chuckle to myself remembering the day you fell off one and went thru the wall when we would work out together. Simple things like making dinner I remember you putting me to work doing all the things I hate to do now. Peeling potatoes for Pot Pie? What I didn't know is that you were teaching me things I use now when I cook. Let's face it if it wasn't for you I'd know very little about this subject. (Sorry Mom) I look at the kids and remember how you would come to our house just about every weekday morning just to either give Rylee a squeeze or even to just watch her sleep. It is heartbreaking that these kids miss out on that kind of love. You would be absolutely blown away by them. Rylee is nothing short of incredible academically and really is just one of the nicest, kindest kids you will ever meet. Jackson very simply put is a miracle. You won't meet too many kids that have endured and overcome more physically and medically then Jack. He would have been your little buddy for sure. Joey is full of energy, sweet, and very much a typical two year old boy. In the same instance I know you know all about these three amazing little creatures. You definitely would have been enjoying retirement spending time with them by now. So in short, I miss you Dad. I've just found more comfort remembering you in my heart .......where is truly counts. Love ya!

There will always be those who try to create or fabricate relationships in death that never existed. Then there are those who are humble and meek enough to know what they had in life that was real and true. What is true and honorable will always prevail.

It's been years since I've been on this website. I knew about Doug Shertzer's line of duty death on a motor. I knew Doug when we met each other for basic training at the Pa. State Police Academy in 1982. Doug, looking at your picture, you had more hair back then, but so did I! My thoughts were with you as they were in 2004 and as they are now in 2013. Sue, I'm sure we met at graduation in Hershey Pa when the 42nd MP Class graduated. I'm praying that the Lord is keeping you and your family ever since Doug's incident.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 8th 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

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 family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Just wanted to stop by and say hey.

I know it's been awhile since I was last here but it doesn't mean I don't think of you everyday because I do.

We became the Grandparents of another beautiful baby boy in September. His name is Joseph Michael and the cool part is that he has red hair. He is adorable, just like all the other Grandkids.

You would be so proud of Christina and the mother she has become.It's hard to believe that tomorrow she will be turning 32 years old.

Wish you could be here to experience these things, but I know you are watching from above.



Miss you, love you always,

I know it's been awhile since I was last here but I wanted to share some good news. We have been blessed with another Granchild today. Joseph Michael was born at 10:48 this morning. He weighed a whopping 8lbs. 15ozs. Christina and baby are doing great. No complications. Everything went very smoothly. I wish you could be here to see him and hold him. I can't believe this is our 6th Grandchild.

Still miss you and think about you everyday.

I'll give Joey a big hug and kiss from you.



Miss you, Love you always

Here it is 6 years since you have been gone. There’s nothing I can say that I haven’t said so many times before. I still think of you every day. I really hate this week because your anniversary date and National Police Week fall in the same week. So many reminders of that horrible day.

Everyone is doing fine. Some birthdays are coming up. Ashlyn will be 9 and Evan will be 8, both on May 25th. .It’s really hard to believe. They were practically babies when you left us .It’s really hard with you not being able to enjoy watching them grow up and they sure are growing up fast. Rylee is playing softball and Evan is playing baseball. I know you would have loved watching them play. When I watch them playing it reminds me of when you used to be an umpire when Christina played softball. There are so many things that happen that remind me of you.


Well I guess I’ll go for now but always remember, you are missed and thought of every day.



Miss you, love you always,
