Laying here trying to sleep but I can't get you off my mind. You will never be forgotten by your BPD brothers. Your legend lives on and the Chucky Smith stories are still told frequently around the station. My kids know your name and can recognize your picture even though they never got the opportunity to meet you. You are deeply missed!

Susie: I have been thinking of you and wondered how your
family got through the holidays. I haven't really got to know
you, but I remember you in my prayers. We share something
that we wish we didn't, but God knows best and we, as hard as
it is, have to learn to live with it.

We had never met, but I came to your funeral. As a former WV police officer, I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for the ultimate sacrifice that you made on that fateful night.

You were a sheepdog my friend. The wolves were never safe with you standing sentry.

Chuck, I cant believe that it has been over three years since you were taken away from us. I find myself driving down South Fayette St. often picturing it the way it was that morning when I got there. I still cant believe that you are gone, but I know that you are watching over us. Rest in Peace

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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 today, and pray for their solace.

Rest In Peace.
