Reflections for Police Officer Alan Christopher Silver

I had known Alan all his life & he was a member of my church. But when Alan became a RMPO he would come n his uniform and sit in the back of the church i felt extra safe & knowing that he was helping to protect the community in which i live it was just a nice warm feeling to have!! I know that Alan is now watching over us & protecting us in life's danger just as did while he was here on earth. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!!!!!!

On April 29th 2007, I heard the words I have always dreaded as a police officer, "Officer Down". During my response, all I could do was pray for Gods will. I could not imagine that he would take you home to be with him. When I arrived, my worse fears were realized. Every thing seemed to go in slow motion wathing the EMS workers, Firemen and Police Officers working to help a friend and brother in need.

On May 2nd 2007, I received the call that you had gone to be with the Lord. It was a bitter sweet moment for me. I praised God for another saved soul going to heaven, but I missed my brother too.

I had the honor of playing Taps at your going home celebration. I have played Taps at MANY functions but none were as honorable as doing it for you!!!

I miss you brother and always will!!! Your memory will remain alive in all of our hearts forever!!!

I thought of you today, lil bruh

I sought my soul, but my soul I could not see
I sought my God, but my God eluded me
I sought my brother, and I found all three

Not a day goes by Alan that I don't think of you and that terrible day in may. Im just sorry my man,I tried so hard to rip that roof of the patrol car. I only wish there was more I could have done to save you. My injury that day ended my career as a police officer.It's a sacrifice I am willing to live with to try and save the life of a brother. You are a hero and I will never forget you.

Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to my home state and the birthplace of my son.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 2 years before you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Two days ago, Bone wrote a poem for you that modeled after a song written by Jadakiss. I was reading it at work and I just started tearing up just from the words said. It was so touching. I miss you dearly man and you are forever on my heart, just like you are forever my right hand man. You were always the best of friends to me even when things were rough and you always showed your support no matter the issue. Alan, my life has taken so many wrong turns, so many different routes than what I've originally planned. But I think everyday of how you always had God in sight and how you always gave it your all. You always gave 110%. That has always been apparent in our friendship. You supported me in my marriage and you helped me through the tough moments, even though it may not have worked for the long run. But I tell you this much. I love you man and you will always have a place in my thoughts. Your memory will never die in this life of mine. You will always be an inspiration. I can still hear your laughter...I hope that the day I make it up to see you, you're at the gates, party-hoppin...and smiling...as we look at each other and then you let out that laugh that would roar through the clouds...I miss you Alan.

You are remembered today by a Durham native and the mother of a fallen officer. My son, Larry Lasater who was also born in Durham, died when shot on April 23, 2005 during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers while serving with the Pittsburg, California Police Department.

Alan, your sacrifice is not forgotten. Rest in Peace. Your memory is honored and revered 2 years after your death and will continue to be. In reading the many loving reflections, I can see that you were an amazing young man who is loved and missed by so many.

To his parents: I share your anquish in losing a beloved child which has to be life's greatest sorrow but time never diminishes our love. You are in my heart's embrace today.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Alan gave to his community and the citizens of North Carolina, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 2, 2007.

Just stopped by to say hello. It was such a pleasure to talk with your parents in May . Two Beautiful souls. I was so pleased that my inlaws were able to relate to your parents. I know God places certain folks in your life at certain times and I'm so glad they were able to find comfort in each others company that week. Thank you for your service.

I like to browse this sight every so often. Tonight I say a silent prayer for the family of Officer Alan Silver and all the men and women who paid the ultimate price for the safety of others. Some faces have stuck in my mind for some reason, Alan being one of them. Its been over a year now and even though we cant bring you back Alan, we can keep your memory alive. My thoughts and prayers go to the Silver family and friends. Alan, you may be gone but you are surely not forgotten ( all these reflections verify that.)
Alan, I Salute you x

Officer Allen Silver We celebrated your life at the national memorial in Washington in May. I Met your mom and dad. They helped my husband and I get thru that week. Although I never met I was allowed to have a glimspe of your life thru your parents. They told us about your love for the lord. What a legancy. Your mom loved you as I loved may son Heath E.O.W JAN.11, 2007. Yes we are now a part of that family. Your mom gave me her email address but I have misplaced it. I hope she sees this note and says a prayer for us. She is in my prayers daily. Just as your faith kept you, our faith will get us thru. Surviving Mother.

I often come here to remember Alan, and everytime I shed tears. Alan was a wonderful young man. He would always come in the center in the mornings and make sure we didn't need anything. There were no boundaries to the kindness he displayed. I remember above all else, Alan's peaceful spirit. I often spoke to him about how I could have get one.
I will never forget standing outside the church for Alan's homegoing service and watching all my family members enter with his family. What a shock to realize at a time like this that this wonderful young man was not just my co-worker, but also my family. I was and still am so very blessed to have known Officer Alan Silver.
I know that all things happen for a reason and that my God makes no mistakes.

TO ALL THAT READ THESE REFLECTIONS I PRAY THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS BLESSED AND LOVED AND REMEMBER THAT NO MAN OR WOMAN KNOWS THE TIME.

It was a year ago yesterday that I left you at the hospital for the last time. I cannot believe it has been a year already. It's amazing how fast time goes by and the things that we, myself included, still take for granted. Even after such a great loss as yours. I think of you SO OFTEN and have relived everything since this past Sunday. It was then around 11:45 that I received a call that my friend, brother, coworker had been in an accident.

Alan, I miss your sweet face and think often of how things would be different if you were still here. I know you are watching over all of us. I wish so many times that you were here to talk to. There has been many times, especially here recently, that I have thought about you and how we use to talk. You were such a GREAT FRIEND and an AMAZING YOUNG MAN! Thank you for everything you brought to my life. You will always hold a very special place in my Heart!

Miss u little ALLYUN!

Love,
Jiiiillllllll

Alan, I think about you often and thought about you greatly a few days ago. I miss talking to you. i miss joking with you. I'm just blessed that I had the opportunity to know you and then to find out while you were here on Earth that we share genes.

Thanks for being such a wonderful example of Christianity, friendship, and brotherhood.

I love you and miss you, but I'll see you again.

Officer Silver and I served on the same squad together. Silver was truly a peoples person. I was impressed at how he handled the calls that we responded to together. I remember asking Silver "what’s the secret in dealing with folks?" Silver looked at me and said "You have to understand the mindset of the people" then put his sun shades over his eyes, and then walked away with a slight pimp strut. Silver was most definitely well respected and will always be remembered.

"Oh what I would give to take a ride to Sonic with you again!" The rememberance of your birthday has brought me here to say a word or two. I still have my blue bow up in my house which constantly reminds me of what a wonderful person I grew to love. Only you and I know about those good ole conversations we used to have about life! You are truly missed but I know you are watching over us. Thank you for the opportunity to be your friend. RIP my brother, RIP!
