Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Frank Fabiano, Jr.

Frank...its been 12 years since you have been gone and it still seems like yesterday. We remember you with the greatest affection and have been watching Angelina grow into a
wonderful adult. She has gone to Australia twice and is now going to Maine for the summer
to be a counselor. She loves to travel, but I know you are watching out for her and know that
she has gone places. Its so quiet with out you here and wanted you to know that you are
missed every day.

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

Frank..you are missed more now then in the beginning and it hasn't gone away...(the pain) but like everyone has said Angelina is doing great and will be going to Australia to be an exchange student...can you believe that. She is growing up so fast and is more like you in so many ways. She is over all the time giving dad a hard time but he would be sad if she didn't...he would say that he had to discipline her like you so she learns...lol...Missing you today and always and hope you, mom and joe are enjoy watching what is happening with all of us and are proud of it.

Uncle Frank, you are the only Uncle I have that I actually call Uncle not just by their first name. Tomorrow marks 9 years since you have been gone 12 days ago marked 5 years since Grandma joined you and last month was 21 years since Dad. Our family has lost soo much but in the past years we have also gained so much. I know you are looking down on us from above with Grandma and Dad. Angelina is awesome, we don't spend much time together but when we do talk it is like we never missed a beat. You would be so proud. We all miss you every minute of every day. Tell Dad and Grandma I love them. Until I see you all again don't have too much fun up there with out us :)

Frank,
It's been over 8 yrs since you gave your life protecting us in Kenosha. I miss golfing with you and seeing your smile. That was one of the hardest days I have had to deal with since my tour in Iraq.
You are the true definition of the word HERO! Your haven't been forgotten as your stickers are on cars all through out Kenosha. Make sure you keep Heaven's fairways ready for me when we play together. We have your watch now, so u can "Stand At Ease". We all gave some, but you my friend gave all!" RIP forever Frank.

Frank,

Who would believe that in two hours it will be exactly 6 years...that you were taken away. Angelina is a regular now at the house. She seems to want to come over as much as possible and you know dad, he can never say no. So we do alot of different things but she has inherited the liking of playing games on her xbox, like you use to do. She is so big now and has an attitude like no other....lol

I wish you were here especially for her because she does miss you, like all the rest of us. Remembering you like I always do.

Amy and Angelina,

I think of you both often during the week, but when Police Week is brought up, there will be one memory I never forget and always ensure is there. We just met at the wall after the vigil and I was able to present the bracelet I wore during the Police Unity Tour to Angelina. After the hugs and general conversation, Angelina wanted to know if I would come back to the hotel and watch a movie with her (I would love to know what she had in mind :)) Amy, you were quick though, and said that I may have other families to visit. It was then, when I realized I was doing the right thing for my fallen brothers and sisters.

Anyway, thinking of both you today, I hope all is well, if now have a member of KCSO get in touch with me, I want to be there for your family.

After five years, I stand by my word.... I DO think of you every night I strap my duty gear on. I wear a ribbon on my vest to remind me that EVERY night is never ROUTINE. I hope you are at peace Frank, as well as your family.

Frank was not just a co-worker, he was a trusted ally, friend, and mentor. I know that it is difficult to understand for those that don't work in Law Enforcement, but unlike your regular office job, when we loose a co-worker it reminds all of us what might happen to us every time we strap on the tools of our trade and start a shift of work. I will never forget my friend Frank, and the lessons he taught me in life and with his death.

Frank,

Its five years today and it still hurts like yesterday. You are always thought of and missed just as much. Angelina is growing up remembering you daily and is always talking about you. You would be proud.

It warms my heart to see that we have healed to the point where the stories have turned to funny memories. My turn.....sorry Frank way to funny not to share. I was working third shift overtime next to Frank. He was area 15 I was 14. We were at Harry's talking, Frank was clearing a scratch off he split with Harry. We were all goofing around teasing eachother about everything. As we left at about 330am I told Frank I would see him later. About 5 minutes after that he called out with several suspicious subjects at the Westosha Animal Clinic. Thinking someone was breaking in to steal drugs I started flying over there. As quickly as he called out with them he cleared?????? I was thinking what the heck? He didn't even run any 29's. I asked him to 25 but I could hear crickets chirping on the computer. I pulled up to the Clinic and Frank was still there backed in next to the building with his lights off. I pulled up to him and he was just smiling. I asked him what had happened. He just looked to the south and laughed. I sat there thinking I was a moron having no idea what he was getting at only to remember that as I pulled into the parking lot around a flag pole was a circle of suspicious full size Ghost decorations for Halloween. hahahahahaha we both had a laugh about it and he told be to keep my mouth shut hahaha Sorry Frank couldn't help it. I miss you my friend.

Just thinking of you and the friends left behind by your murderer tonight. You, your family, co-workers and friends are in my prayers. I made a promise in late 2007 that you will never be forgotten and that rings true today.

Amy and Angelina, I pray that you are doing well and remain strong.

Frank,

It is exactly 3 years to the date and now you have one more part of our family with you. I am finding it hard to understand things that have been happening... but just know that I think about you daily and wished things had been different. You gave your life to something that you believed in and that was something to be proud of. We are all missing you on this day and now not only do you have Joe with you but also our mother.

Amy and Angelina, in 2008 I made a promise to you that I would never forget your husband and father. I continue to think about Frank and will again ride for him this year in the Police Unity Tour. He will not be forgotten, ever.

Frank,
A few weeks ago I was in DC again and I visited your place on the wall. I thought about your family during my ride and while at your place on the wall and was quietly hoping I would get to see them again. I may have missed them, or maybe they were not able to make the trip either way, I was thinking of you. I know that will not bring any peace to your daughter and wife, but I swear that as long as I breathe, you will never be forgotten, ever.
You have been my inspiration to do better things, not only at home, but for our profession, I'm just so sorry it came at such a price.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second 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.

I hold your family in thought and prayer today and pray for their solace.
