Your heroism and service is honored today, the 64th 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 dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

You died the day I was born. I just read the reflections
from 2 young officers from Maryland who also died on
Feb. 13th 6 years ago today. All 3 of you were taken much too soon with so many plans and dreams left unfulfilled. You chose a dangerous profession, but made a mighty impact. Thank you for your service
and sacrifice.

We ask Thy blessings and eternal rest to all our brothers and sisters
Who have sacrificed their very lives in the performance of
their duties. Give their loved ones the peace and
Strength to bear the anguish of their loss. Remove all
resentment from their hearts, knowing that eternal
peace and rest will abide their departed loved ones
forever. This we beg, Thy name forever and ever,
