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.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 91rst 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

My family and I wish to express our heartfelt condolences to another hero. Like too many other heroes, your EOW came entirely too soon. How devastating it must have been for your family to hear that you were gone after only one day on the job. Thank you for your bravery, your honesty and your integrity. More importantly thank you for the sacrifices you made in selflessly serving all of us. Only those of us who have served fully understand the sacrifices we make to protect our families, friends, and fellow citizens. By and large these sacrifices pale in comparison to your ultimate sacrifice. God bless you and your family. You are in our prayers. Rest is peace hero; your watch is over...we will take the watch from here.
