Your heroism and service is honored today, the 5th 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

Next week I will be taking my 15 police recruits from Grand Valley State University Police Academy to 24th Street to meet you, Scott. They will have just finished a "fun" week of Emergency Vehicle Operations - trying to dodge cones. The story of your selfless service will be the reality check that they need to understand everything that's involved in serving a community. Please, Scott, be with me and give me the words to make these young men and women understand who you were and how you impact so many of us still.

My mom and I just visited the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC and a very strange thing happened while there-after finding your name I was sitting on the bench (snacking of course) and a squirrel sat next to me and started wagging his tail, I reached over with a cracker and HE TOOK IT!!!! Thanksyou for making me smile, an uneasy visit turned out very pleasant. By the way, that squirrel let me take some AMAZING pictures while he shared my crackers :)
