Reflections for Patrolman Anthony Cannata

I wish I could have met you Uncle but I heard a lot of story's about you from my dad, your brother Carlo. He was only 19yrs old when you passed away he is 81yrs old now & the last member of the family still here. When he gets to Heaven it will be a grand reunion for all of you!

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th 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
