Hey Brad!!! It’s been almost 9 years and it’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you!! From looking at old pictures to happy memories of you!! This past week has been one of the toughest ones in a long time. We lost another great Hero in the line of duty, Officer Billa!! It was like going through the nightmare all over again!! Dealing with the same emotions that we dealt with June 2, 2009. It upsets me and brings so much anger all over again. If we could go back and change anything about that night, it would be me being there with you to warn you and help you and you would still be here!! I miss you so much big baby!!! Everyday I think about the involvement you would have had in your nephews life’s with school and especially sports!! I think about the additional nieces and nephews that I would have had and the many adulthood memories we would have added on to the childhood memories!! I will continue to make sure my boys know WHO their uncle was and WHAT he was... our HERO!! I love you Brad & I miss you dearly!!

Today is the Day of the most traumatic event I've ever experienced in my life. It has been 5 years since I had my last conversation with You. Earlier in that day, we talked while you were on duty and I was on my way home from work. I kept wanting to get off the telephone as you worked, but you wouldn't let me. You were like, "Mama it's ok, I can talk". You had so much to share with me. You were full of excitement about your future plans with Lakenda. Little did I know that would be our last conversation. Not many, if any days go by that I don't think of you, son. I miss you dearly and I know one day I will you him again. Our family is growing. You have a brother-in-law, Demetrius and 2 nephews King and Kyson that are growing and keeping us busy. As you had pushed and motivated your friends, one of them, Geowaski, has followed in your footsteps. He is now in the police academy for UAB. He keeps me informed and says it's because of you, Brandon. So even though you are not here physically, you have left your mark and people are still inspired by you. You were such a blessing to so many people and continue to make me proud of you.
Happy 5th year in Heaven. I know you are still working and blessing people with your smile. Most of all, mama wants you to Rest In Peace.

I/we love and miss you.

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

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Every time I put on my uniform the first thing I put on my shirt is a pin that was given out at your funeral. I think of you every day and that pin represents you until today. Now it sadly, even more sadly, represents another young brother in blue from our department. Show Steven around up there. He was a good officer. He needs an FTO in Heaven. Make it happen!

Hey Brandon, there's a sister in blue coming your way. Her name is Gail Thomas and shes from the Atlanta Police Department. Like you she was taken in the line of duty too. Down here she would be a senior officer, but up there your the senior. When you meet her show her the ropes. You can't miss her, she has a big smile just like you. This time your the FTO and when its time for Gail to get out on her own I'm sure with your guidance she'll be 10-8. Take care and watch over all of us during Mardi Gras.

To the family of officer Sigler, I am so very sorry for your loss. God Bless each of you.

To my brother officers at Mobile Police Department: Stay strong, Be blessed and always STAY SAFE.

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell[a] in the house of the LORD Forever.

Brandon,
There is not a day that goes by that Waski doesn't think of you. He misses you dearly and so do I. I miss the phone calls where your opinion would just hit home. I am fighting back tears now because I really miss you B. I continue to keep in contact with your fiance to let her know that we are here for her just as you would be here for me. I'm glad that God placed you in my life and I will always cherish the memories you have given me. Continue to rest in peace and we shall meet again. Oh yeah Waski didn't forget your birthday this time LOL!

Love,
Endya

Hey my big baby!!!! This is my first time doing this, so lets see how it goes..... I love and miss you dearly and really wish you were here with us. So much has happened since you left. I am sure that you are already aware of everything because I know you are up there looking down on us and with us everyday. It's so much that I want to tell you. I really miss picking up the phone and calling you just about everyday just for nothing. Anyways, of course you already know you have a nephew now!!! I know if you were here you would be going off on West an I, lol. But you would also be spoiling the death out of him. We named him King "Nykori" West, yes his middle name had to be exclusive like his uncle!! He was born on the 29th of October 2010. So we all received a blessing since one was taken from us. I have it in my head that it is you sent back to us all over again, and since I call you my big baby, I think that God sent you back to us but only as my real baby this time and because he knew how bad I was hurting as well as everyone else. He is getting so big Brad and he looks just like you at times!! We are still waiting to see whose nose he will have, lol. I really hate that he will never get to meet you and that you won't be in his life. That hurts even more. When we was younger I always thought about you having kids first and how the 3 of us would be when we got into our 30's and 40's, I wondered if we would be like mama an uncle Byron. But since you are gone from us I can only wonder what we would have been like. Writing on here is kind of hard, it's actually tearing me up, but I will be ok. Since people say that it is up to God whether to bring people back and to take them from this earth, I often think that he will bring you back to us, and you will just awake from you coffin like nothing even happened. I always say to myself, if only West an I would have stopped by that night then we would have been there for you and this would have never happened. I know it's too late but if only we could go back to the time before it happened just to see if we could have helped you and saved you. I just want this to be all a bad dream so we could go back to normal. Even though you are gone you will never be forgotten. We celebrate your birthday everytime it comes around, and I still put your name on gifts under the christmas tree. So we finally had the trial an it went in our favor. I prayed every night for the longest for it to go in our favor an it did. Now we can rejoice and give thanks to God . Justice was served and you can finally rest in peace. The trial was so hard on all of us Brad, I'm sure you understand. It really hurt me hearing some of the things people were saying especially your last words and your actions. It hurt even more knowing that someone could be so heartless and leave you there to die instead of help you as if you are nothing at all. Til this day that hurts me so bad and brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I was so scared and nervous of what the verdict would be, even though the facts an evidence was all there. We had so much support from so many people during the trial, especially our other family "Law Enforcement". It made me feel so good to know that we had so many people there for you and for us. Even though the trial was hard, we still all got through it. I know it was God and you that got us through it all. Of course you know you are getting a lot of attention since all of this happened. You always said you were exclusive and a beast, and look at you now. You can now add famous to what you are, lol. So many people have their opinions on the incident and the verdict. Some of the opinions hurt due to them acting like you were no ones loved one. Some of the people just need to ask theirselves what would they want if it happened to their son, brother, friend, or fiance. I just really wish you were able to at least tell what happened, I want to hear your side because I know you would tell the truth about it. It hurts even more that him and the witnesses still do not feel that they owe us the truth. I mean thats the least they can do. I love you big baby!!! Of course you already know today is my birthday... Yea I'm getting old just like you!!! I know if you were here I would have gotten some money and lunch from you. I miss you so much Brad, nothing or no one can ever replace you!!! I just wish that you could come back to us. I never ever thought I would lose you, I just knew you would always be there for Adrienne and I, to protect us and look after us. I know you are up there looking down on us and still protecting us! I love you Brad an I will forever miss you!!! I can't wait til the day we reunite again!!!! I love you big baby!!!!

Hello Sweetie,

The trial is over and the jury rendered a verdict of guilty of capital murder to your assailant. He was sentenced to prison for life without parole. Your mother, fiance', sisters, stepfathers, grandparents, brother (Lydell), brothers in blue, aunts, uncles, friends and many others are pleased with the verdict. The trial was difficult for us at times, but I know that God was with us. Some don't understand, but I am your mother and I know your heart and you know mine. My heart aches for this young man and his family. You remember I always told you all about the decisions you make and having to deal with the consequences of your actions. There was plenty of truth in that, right. I pray for them and I pray that the Lord will keep us all near and dear to him. I love and miss you.

My thoughts are with all of your loved ones on this first anniversary of you being called away from duty. I know those close to you have thought about you every day since you have been gone and will continue to do so as they carry you in that special place in their hearts. I know the daily struggle you Mom has for I walk in her shoes and I'd like to leave this for her that someone sent to me:

"The sense of loss does not diminish with time. In truth, the expression, 'time heals all wounds' is a myth. For parents, the loss of a child is permanent and mental scar tissue really does not grow over the grim memory. Rather, all tears are expended and a dull ache remains."

Continue to watch over all of your loved ones. Thank you for being the hero that you are and you will never be forgotten.
