Your heroism and service is honored today, the 102nd 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

Dear Patrolman Baker:

Following a story in the local newspaper by reporter James Rada, I forwarded the information regarding your tragic death to the ODMP. They included your story very quickly and now you are with the other heroes who served so well. On the 100th anniversary of your death you will be memorialized in Cumberland. Yes, you are still remembered. Rest well, Patrolman Baker!

After the clouds, the sunshine,
After the winter, the spring,
After the shower, the rainbow,
For life is a changeable thing.
After the night, the morning,
Bidding all darkness cease,
After life's cares and sorrows,
The comfort and sweetness of peace.

Dear Patrolman Baker,

We know you are in heaven with God. We need your prayers and protection as our lives continue down here. We will meet you someday to thank you for your guidance. We love you.
