Officer Dean, two days ago another Ohio Police Officer was taken from his family and community. On this 7th anniversary of your death, I just wish to acknowledge your sacrifice and dedication and to thank you for welcoming Officer Cottrell to his new assignment as I'm sure you did.

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

Time never dimishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.. I pray for the solace of all those who love and miss you for I know the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace

Officer Dean, you are not forgotten and you are a hero. My prayers are with your family that they remain safe and not be reunited with you until the time is right. I have a feeling however that you're always with them anyway.

A year has passed and some will say that it feels like only yesterday that you were here. For others, especially those that love your dearly, it has felt like a lifetime since they saw your smile, felt your touch and heard your voice. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones. You have not been forgotten.
