Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I hold your family in thought and prayer and pray for their solace.

Rest In Peace.

It's a little after 10 pm here in RC South, Helmand Province, Afghanistan. We just had dinner chow, my squad and I just got back from our mission. I was a little nervous as usual standing in that gunners turret. But today I felt a little safer, no lie man I really did. I wanna say thanks for having my back today, I know so many people here on earth are thinkning about you on this day. I wish I was with them back in AZ. I know things here will go well, so I can be around them again. I just wanted to say thanks for having my back today, I know true heroes like yourself and Eric White are looking out for us day by day, and I for one appreciate that. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing." -Edmund Burke. Believe me when I say that the community you served, is a less evil place today because of your heroism, selfless service, and honor. You really are a hero, not that many people hold that title these days, but you do. Thanks for giving us something to believe in. True heros. Thanks again.


August 28, 2009

Today marks 5 years, I cannot believe it's been that long. I remember the first day you walked into the peak as a rookie. I often wonder where you would be in your career if that terrible night never happened. You haven't been forgotten. Watch over your family especially today. I miss you.

Jason, it seems every year I go onto your website just cuz I'm thinking of T & C. I knew I would not let your anniversary date go by without coming in and saying hello. I have missed Tara so much it seems our lives have gotten so busy that we haven't had a chance to just sit and talk but we both share a bond that not many can say they share. I know you are looking down upon her and C and just smiling from ear to ear just as you are in your picture. I hope you continue to watch over that kiddo of yours and help him grow into the man you would like him to be. I will be thinking of you and your family this whole week and praying that you will watch over them all.

I haven't been on this website for awhile..I needed to take a break & "live in the moment". I know you never feel like I am abandoning you when I do this because I know what is necessary & required from you (to many talks about what ifs I suppose). So, this summer is marking another year, another countdown to the day you were called home, another..what? I have learned over the years that another can mean positive things as well. Another year to share memories, stories, & laughter about you, another year to be thankful to be here with our son & making wonderful new memories to celebrate, another year to spend time with both of our families & enjoy each other's success & offer support for struggles. This is what our life is about! Thank you for showing me the "right road" through some difficult times. I know you are not here physically & while others might not believe you have a hand in our every day life, I believe. I believe as I look into his eyes & see his father, I believe when I see the cutest dimple on his face, I believe when I hear the words, "I love you more" no matter how many times I smother him with hugs & kisses. Thank you for my blessings. Although one stands out in so many minds, you have blessed me & the little one with so many more. I love you dearly & I am so thankful for you.

Watch over us and keep us safe. Until our time becomes forever,

T & C Wolfe

Hey J. I didn't know you but I was fresh out of the academy with Baltzer just after you had passed. We had a training the other day and it was all about building entries and staying safe based on your EOW. The only reason I say that is to let you know that you did not die in vain. We learned a great deal and my guess is that your death will save thousands more officers in the future, maybe even me. I read your wife's postings, man did she love you, which is why you will live forever. Take care.

Jason, keep watch over everyone, send your lovely family signs so they will know that death is only a physical parting, love is immortal. God Bless you, Tara and your son.

Thank you for your service. Keep watch over us.

Sweet Jason!

The day is here! I cannot believe it! I can recall every moment of that day! The blessing! Our love, our tears, our pride, our absolute fear (tee hee)! Without you, none of this life would be possible! I love you eternally for what we share love, my life!

I miss you and I wait for you in my dreams!

a new officer from Phoenix joined you. I know you will take good care of him for his wife and child and I feel that your beautiful Tara will be an angel on earth for another grieving widow.
God bless all officers.

Hey Babe!

Where should I start? It was great to see Chambers again. He is such a nice guy. I have thought a lot about him since I last saw him...he attended a dinner with me where you were honored. It has been quite some time since we have talked or seen each other. I know the history between the two of you and I know how much you both cared for each other. Stay with him means such a great deal to us both to know you "have his back". It meant a lot to have someone that loves you so very much be able to participate in uncovering your sign. I had thought about bringing the munchkin but I am so thankful I did not. It would have been very overwhelming for him to be around so many people staring at him and him not knowing anyone but K and I, your Mom and Uncle T. It is always for the best as his "perfect little world" remains sacred and safe within the comforts of loved ones. Those who knew you understand my choices and support me fully and for that I am eternally grateful.

I spent some time at the apartment; the crime scene. It was actually my first and last time there. I had someone walk me through the events of that day. I was so angry at first and I wanted to hit him and make him feel some of the pain I have felt for that last four years yet he surprised me. He said what I had been wanting to hear for so long...if only...I would have changed...I don't miss a single day without thinking about him...I make choices now with him in mind...his death was not in vain. Thank you for helping me find a little piece of forgiveness. I know your hand was at work Jason. You were always looking out for me in your own special way.

As for that other gift you sent me...thank you. I really don't know how it is done and with so much strength but it gets done. You blessed me and I am thankful each and every day!

We had so much fun on Saturday. I could feel you there with all of us. We love when he is around the family and I think it gives the munchkin a sense of closeness that he is to young to really comprehend. I steal small glances and see some of you every time we are together and I can't help but miss you and wish you were here to share our laughter, joy, and memories. There is something that you have given us and although it is never spoken outloud, those involved know what it is...I love you for that and I know everyone else does as well.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you...I will always carry you in my heart! Watch over us and keep us safe, now and always my sweetheart!

My love now and always,
T. Wolfe

P. S. Thank you to everyone that keeps Jason's memory alive. Thank you for not forgetting his sacrifice or the sacrifice of those that love him the most. He is an angel to so many people...and what a handsome angel he is!!

My thoughts are with you, your son, and your family on this day. I know it was especially hard with the memorial sign today. Know you are thought of and highly respected with the grace you carry yourself through all of this tragedy. I know you know that Jason is with you and realize he would be so proud of you this very moment.

Take care,

Hi Jason and T and C,
My how time seems to fly yet seems to stand still when you are grieving the loss of a husband, daddy, brother, friend. I can't believe it's been four years since last you saw your family. But if I know Tara she is taking such great care of that little fella of yours. I wish I lived closer to them so we could share more of what we feel as time goes by. Sad to say I only see her once a year if Im lucky. She is such a wonderful woman Jason, and I know you are very proud of her and C. I know in heaven love never dies but only grows deeper and deeper. Take Care good kind sir and I hope one day we all get to meet in heaven the Rios and the if heaven will ever be the same....God Speed You Jason. Love, Christy.

Hard to believe its been 4 years Jay. I was just a rookie when I met you so I got to do all your wagons from Frys. Continue to rest in peace. You, Eric, and Nick all keep watching after each other and all of us at SPP. NEVER forgotten Jay.

To T and C,

I am praying for you both today as I know it is not easy even after four years. I live in AZ and wish that I could tell every officer how thankful I am for their protection of innocent lives. I believe that Jason's dedicated service to the City of Phoenix will always be remembered. May God hold you in his loving arms today and always.

Thinking of you and all of your loved ones today as they face this dreadful day today. Some people may say that they can not believe that time has gone by so fast, but those are not the ones that were close to you and have that empty place in their hearts from not seeing your smile, feeling your touch or hearing your laugh and to them it has felt like a lifetime ago. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones and protect them from harm and also those still out on patrol. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten. I'd like to end this reflection with a short poem someone sent me:

"No person is ever truly alone.
Those who live no more,
Whom we loved,
Echo still within our thoughts,
Our words, our hearts.
And what they did,
And who they were,
Becomes a part of all that we are,
Forever." (Poem by: Richard Fife)

I know you don't have a daughter, but this seemed appropriate. Miss you J. It's been a long time. Take care Tara.

Daddy's Poem
Her hair was up in a pony tail,
Her favourite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
And she couldn't wait to go.

But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone

But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
Of why he wasn't there today.

But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.

But the little girl went to school
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees
A dad who never calls.

There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
Anxious in their seats.

One by one the teacher called
A student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.

'Where's her daddy at?'
She heard a boy call out.
'She probably doesn't have one,'
Another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
'Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day.'

The words did not offend her,
As she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on.

And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
Came words incredibly unique.

'My Daddy couldn't be here,
Because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.

And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so.

He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.

We used to share fudge sundaes,
And ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him.
I'm not standing here alone.

'Cause my daddy's always with me,
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart'.

With that, her little hand reached up,
And lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
Beneath her favorite dress.

And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads,
Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years.

For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.

And when she dropped her hand back down,
Staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.

'I love my daddy very much,
he's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
But heaven's just too far.

You see he was a policeman
And died just this past year
When airplanes hit the towers
And taught Americans to fear.

But sometimes when I close my eyes,
it's like he never went away.'
And then she closed her eyes,
And saw him there that day.

And to her mothers amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
All starting to close their eyes.

Who knows what they saw before them,
who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
they saw him at her side.

I know you're with me Daddy ,'
to the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
of those once filled with doubt.

Not one in that room could explain it,
for each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.

And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
by the love of her shining star.
And given the gift of believing,
that heaven is never too far.
