Reflections for Deputy Sheriff James Work

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 98th 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.

Deputy Work, you are a hero. Your death at the hands of a cowardly rat only makes you that much more of a hero. You faced risk and did what had to be done. Sadly, you and your family paid the ultimate price. The memorial doesn't say what happened to the S.O.B. that killed you, but I would guess he's rotting in hell.

God Bless you and Rest in Peace.
