Reflections for Corrections Employee Harold Edward Rice

I was born four days before your passing and we never met. I pray justice will be served either in this realm or another. My mother missed you daily and you were ripped from our lives all too soon.
Your first granddaughter,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 35th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

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

Rest In Peace

It is high time a memorial was put on this site for you. Although you weren't part of the custody staff, you still peformed a dangerous job as you were responsible for supervising the inmates in the industrial area. When I first started at the prison years ago, we were told that your death in part was why we were limited in the amount of cash we could have on our person while on duty and why we were strongly encouraged not to wear expensive rings or watches. It takes a lot of courage to work behind the walls of a maximum security institution and I thank you for your service.

I was there as a rookie correctional officer when this murder took place, and I want Mr. Rice to know that we did look for his killers non-stop until we just ran out of suspects. I am happy to see that after all these years, you got the respect you deserved. You were a good employee as well as just a great person, we had many of cups of coffee together, my next cup will be raised in your honor once again.

Mr. Rice,
It has taken over thirty years but you are finally being honored. I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the state of Indiana. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.
