Your soul can rest Sheriff Sizemore, it no longer cries out for the identity and arrest of the coward who shot you, and it will rest even better when he is convicted and given the death sentence. Your devotion and ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten. Prayers for you family as this long and drawn out ordeal is finally seeing some light at the end of a long tunnel.

Midland Texas Police Department

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 30th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace.
