Reflections for Sergeant Linden "Beau" Raimer

I remember working at Walmart and everytime before I walked in, you had something to say and we just laugh and cut up. You were very kind and sweet and very humble. You were the true definition of a GREAT COP! Miss you!!

Nine years................. It seems like only yesterday that several of us hauled ass to St. Tammany Hospital, hoping, praying, and begging for a miracle, and that it wasn't as bad as it sounded on the radio, even though we could all tell by the sound, nervousness, and fear in everyone's voice that it was bad. Really, really bad.

Even though it was less than a three minute ride from Hillary's services, the drive to the hospital seemed to take forever!! I knew instantly that we had lost you as soon as we pulled up to the hospital, and saw the grief stricken faces of our fellow brothers and sisters in blue.

You were taken from us way too soon my friend. I think about you often brother, and miss the hilarious conversations we used to have. You were always a pleasure to be around.

Keep an eye out for us brother, and help us stay one step ahead in the fight. Rest easy my friend.

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

I think of you from time to time even all these years later. I'm sure you know that, though. I can still see your smile, remember your voice, the sound of your laugh, your mannerisms. Can't say I was surprised you didn't get old like the rest of us. You called it. You told me many times you knew you would never be old. I think the gift in you knowing that is how much you lived each day. Oh all the irony in so many of our conversations! I'm only sorry you were right. That's one thing you could've been wrong about, you know. I did tell you not to say that. Bad juju! For the record, I told you so! Haha!

You were a great friend to so many, me included. You definitely made work fun. You kept us on our toes. No telling where you'd end up, especially during night shift. For all the laughs....and the many times you ran out the door giggling after getting us to throw stuff at you.... Thanks.

I'm honored to have dispatched for you. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to know you. I'm particularly honored to call you "friend".

You're never forgotten. So many keep you near. You'll be going on for a looooong time in our hearts and memories.

I'll never forget.

I knew Beau when he was just a child, made me so proud when he chose law enforcement, have spoke to many who worked with him & they all spoke highly of him. Cannot believe it has been 7 yrs. R.I.P. MY "Brother"

It's been 6 years today since you were called home. I still think about you and that day often. Mike and I were only a few cars ahead of you and Mary in the procession when the storm hit. It still seems somewhat unreal, but we all still think and speak about you often. Today, several of us have been reflecting on years past and I couldnt help but smile thinking about old times. From our days in the academy together to the last time we were on a call together, when I got into pursuit that led to Covington and you came to help. I still laugh thinking about how that ended, with you deploying the Taser and I ended up getting bit by it too. Your memory lives on brother, rest easy in the arms of our Lord and keep an eye on us all.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 5th anniversary year 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

Beau, I think about you every day. Whether it be something big or something small. For some reason I just woke up from a hard sleep with the vision of that day. I was standing at 21st and Tyler when you went by. As you past you motioned you would call me later that day, you had a question for me. Moments later I heard the call. When I was told who it was everything in me stopped. I went straight to the hospital to hear that you had left us. Since that day I've wondered what that question was? I know someday we will meet again and you'll get your answer. Until that day we will hold close the good memories. You are gone but will never be forgotten brother.

I can't believe it's been four years brother. I stopped by your memorial on 21st for a minute as I do every anniversary! The events of that day ran through my mind constantly, just like every year! Things trigger your memory daily, often bringing smiles and the occasional tear drop! I just couldn't bring my self to this page on the anniversary day; although, I am here now to say you are not nor will you ever by forgotten brother! Rest in peace brother!

Thank you, Sgt. Raimer, for your service. There is no doubt in my mind that you were not only a great officer, but a great man. You will never be forgotten.

Sgt. Raimer, thank you for your service, you died honoring one of your own Officer Mayo. I pray your fiance Mary is doing better, not only did she have to deal with your untimely death, but her own injuries from surviving the accident that claimed your life. My thoughts and prayers are with her and all of your family.

Its been a year and two days, and it still doesn't seem like reality. We miss you all the time and talk about you often. I still to this day find myself asking "why, why you?" The only answer I seem to get is its part of God's master plan, that we do not always understand. We've had a few close calls since you and Big Hill left us, but we made out ok, thanks to ya'll watching over us. Things just aren't the same since you left us. You made a big impact on a lot of peoples lives and will always be remembered. I got one of the new guys with one of your old jokes the other day, it really had him worried for a few minutes. I didn't go too long with it though, I couldn't help but smile thinking about when you got me with it. You know it was a good laugh, but would have been better if you would've been there. I tried to pick out a poem or saying to go with this, but I just couldn't find one that fit such a great person as you. Just keep watching over us and we shall meet again someday. Rest easy brother and watch over us, as we continue on this journey to meet with you again someday.
