Reflections for Special Deputy Sheriff Jessie J. Pace

I remember reading about the Coal mine strikes and the National Guard being brought in.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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. Rest In Peace.

How nice this site exists for your great grandchildren to be able to post reflections for the ancestor his 7 month old daughter revered and who taught her family to revere him.
