Happy Anniversary Babe. Today would have been eleven year and I miss you so much. I cherish all of the anniversaries that we did get to share and am so thankful that God gave me you for the time that He did - it just was not enough time - it would have never been enough time.

Hi Babe, that one was for you. I hope you are proud of the way it turned out and the way I handled it. Honoring you was my goal and I believe that I did what I had to do in order to achieve that goal. I could feel you with me yesterday and when I closed my eyes - I could see yours and feel your arms around me. I love you my sweet husband and I believe now you can truly rest in peace. Good night my love.

I love you babe and miss you so much. We all miss you! Fabian could not sleep the other night so Nikki put his Papa Dave tshirt on him and talked about you and that helped him sleep. Can you believe little Conrad David is a year old already! I wish you would have gotten to hold him but we will make sure your grandbabies all remember you. I love you Babe.

Happy New Years babe. I miss you so much and wish you were here with me. I am leaving tomorrow to go to Vegas with my mom and my brother Glen will meet us there. How am I going to do this without you? Vegas was "our" place. I remember all the fun times we had there and I want to smile about them but I just cry. I know you will be with me as I know you always are. I love you babe always and forever. Sweet dreams babydoll.

Hi babe, today your mom and I went to the cemetery and decorated for Christmas. It is just not right. We were also the grand marshalls at the Parade of Lights and it was so honoring to ride in honor of you. I will always honor you and I will never let people forget you and the sacrifice that you made. I miss you babe and it seems like things are just getting harder but I am trying to be strong for you. I love you babe always and forever. Good night babe.

Happy 10th Anniversary Babe. I wish you were here so bad. Ten years ago you made me the happiest woman ever by making me your wife and I was so blessed to have had you in my life. You made our life so wonderful and I know how much you loved me...thank you for showing me what true love really is and thank you for a wonderful life. I remember on on our honeymoon we were sitting in Vegas and you were on the slot machine and I asked you if you were winning and you looked up at me and told me you already won by having me. I will never forget our life and all the love we shared. I am the one who won - you blessed my life in so many ways. I love you David always and forever.

Hi Babe, I was just remembering the day before you died how you took the afternoon off from work and we kept our little angel Dixie (she sure loved her grandpa so much). We took her over to the fairgrounds to look at the animals then to see the girls. That night when she cried you held her and just rocked her till she fell to sleep. The next morning she could not wait to go out to the back yard with you..I can still hear her as she was trying to crawl out the back door yelling "Grandpa I am coming". Fabian still remembers you and we will make sure that your new grandson Conrad David will know all about you. Jesse,Nikki, Jason, PJ, Andrea and Amanda miss you so much and will cherish you always, just like I will. I love you babe. Love always and forever, your wife, Kathy

It's been over a year since I was helping close up Cheyenne Frontier Days. That Sunday, someone came up to me and asked if I had heard anything about an officer shot in the line of duty. I had not, but curious to find out, I asked a stranger to use her phone's internet. 9news had a short story about a Montrose officer was dead and two more were in the hospital. I grew up on the Western Slope (Rangely), so it was critical I got there. My brass was supportive and authorized my travel orders. That was a long, hot service in that gym, and I could hardly move when it was time to stand up. Kathy, I think about you, your husband and your daughters every day. I'm proud to do the job I do every day. Please pray for the safety of our heros.

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 all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace.

Hi Babe, a year ago on July 25, 2009 you were taken from me. This has been the hardest year of my life. I miss you so much and miss everything that we all would have shared. Your grandkids miss you dearly and so do all of the children. Amanda and Andrea are doing fair this week so please watch over them and help them get through it as it will be so difficult for them without you. Babe, I will love you always and forever. You will always be alive in my heart. I know you are in Heaven smiling down on us. I miss you babe and will love you into eternity.

Hi my love, just got back from attending the Events for National Police Week in D.C. It was such an honor for me to be able to go and honor you over the last week.

You are my forever love and I will always cherish you. I love you babe. Rest in Peace my sweet husband. Forever and Always.

Chief Moreland, I am sorry - I wish I would have been there but I was not at the chambers that day. However, I will be at the Colorado Memorial May 7th and then at the National Memorial in Washington D.C. Thank you for your kind words and for your service. David, I miss you so much and will be proud to be at the memorial. I wish you were here babe, please give me the strength I need to get through the next few weeks. I love you babe.

Sergeant Kinterknecht - Two Fridays ago, on a very rainy morning, I stood near your wife in the State Assembly chambers when your name was one of the almost 250 read off during a vote regarding next month's Police Memorial Week. You will not be forgotten. Thank you for your service to the people of Montrose and the state of Colorado. May God grant you eternal rest and may his perpetual light shine upon you.
