Just this past Thursday, on the 12th anniversary of your death, a large group of us, your fraternity brothers, gathered at East Lawn to honor you and your ultimate sacrifice. We shared many stories of you from the past. Even though you aren’t with us, we felt your presence. You are greatly missed and will never be forgotten.

I will forever remember your smile. I miss you and remember you everyday. We lost so much that year. I was afraid to go to work to see who else would not be going home.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 4th 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 the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I continue the fight before the California legislature to keep intact the justice a jury and judge gave your family, my family, the families of CHP Officer Thomas Steiner, Oceanside Police Officer Daniel Bessant, and Glendora Police Officer Louis Pompei as well as the civilian victims of jlwop inmates.

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

I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

I did not know you, but I have come to know you. Your best friend has shared how amazing you were - a man of exceptional integrity, a man of courage, a man of love for all. Your legacy has spread all the way to Chile way I work with your old friend. I offer these words to share that, even after your tragic passing, you live on as an example to us all.
