Reflections for Sheriff Westley A. McDonald

Sheriff W.A. McDonald was my grandfather though he was killed before i was even conceived or born.
His wife my beloved grandmother Blanche Maybelle ( Pat) Lively McDonald left Colorado after his death. She moved to Salem Oregon and worked herself up from being a metermaid to becoming thee first FEMALE DEPUTY SHERIFF OF MARION COUNTY SALEM OREGON USA. She remained faithful to her beloved husband who was the Love of her life.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 58th 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

Sheriff McDonald - Sounds like you were leading from the front, Sir. Three weeks ago, I stood in the State Assembly chambers when your name was one of almost 250 read off during a motion regarding next month's Police Memorial Week. You are not forgotten.

Thank you for you service to the people of Washington County and the state of Colorado. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.
