I feel so sorry for his family and to all the other agents protecting and serving for this country. He used his own life for every single person living in America and I appreciate that. Also because my father worked there and know what it feels to feel that someone special is in a dangerous spot.

Having come from the Campo Station, I think of you often as I was very familiar with the area you worked. It could have been any one of us. My heart is heavy for your wife and children. The Patrol takes care of its own and I know you have fellow PA's that will always check on them. No one knows what it is like to work the remote canyons alone except another PA - you are truly one of the bravest.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first 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 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. I pray for the solace of those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.
