Special Constable Beasley, though you served for one day, you will forever be humbly honored as a police hero. Your first name means my king in the Hebrew language. You fulfilled Our Creator's statutes and now may you rest in serene peace in heaven. Your mission here was deemed complete. So sad for your family and colleagues.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 111th 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.

How wonderful that your descendants were able to leave reflections for you.

Rest In Peace

Dear Malachi,
I am so very proud of you, even though we never met. Nanny Eva loved you so... and spoke of you often. I know her pain has eased now that she is with you. With love, your great, great granddaughter, Nancy.

Dear Special Constable Beasley,

You stood a line, protecting those who could not protect themselves and those who turned to you for protection. May God hold you in his arms. Another brave officer to stand guard at heaven's gate - we need you to watch over us. Thank you for your sacrifice. We pray for you and all those who were affected by this terrible tragedy. We will meet someday. We love you.
