My heart is so heavy; especially with starting a new year again without you. Some days it feels like the last 14 months have flown by and others it feels like im standing still. Not a day has gone by that your not the first thing I think about when I wake up; my heart breaks over and over when I realize it's true and not a dream that your gone. I miss you so much and hope with all my heart that you continue to know how much I love you...and always will.

Dave,
Kelly is at your parents today with a bunch of the guys from the barracks. I hope your looking down on them and smiling. I know they are telling some good stories. Can't believe a year has gone by. God bless Dave. We all miss you. See you when I see you.

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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thank you for serving in the military as well.

Rest In Peace

Dave,

Saw your picture hanging on the Wall of Honor at the Academy this week and it is just sticking in my mind. It was an honor and privilege to work with you, but beyond that, it sure was fun. From sitting night desk (cash cab!) to wrestling with a suspect ("I can do this dance all night long"), thanks for the good times.

Missed you so much today..so hard to live without that grin...missed how you would tease Steve by signing your card from your favorite son... Steve keeps you alive... He bought me a blue spruce tree today to make a garden to put the flag pole by. Someday I can have his children help decorate Uncle David's tree. You would have been the best Uncle and you would have been a great Dad....We laughed today as we know you were messing with printers at Uncle Chris and with Steve's printer...Oh how we miss you.... Love you and think of you every minute of our day...xoxoxo

Thinking of you a lot lately. I was in Washington DC today. I went to the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. This is the place where you will have your name engraved. This is the place where I can take my kids to show them what a hero you are. I will always talk of Uncle Dave with the utmost respect, but more importantly with a smile on my face. I know that is the way you would want it. Love you
Bud!

Everyone knows now what a hero you are. You have given your life to do your job. This should come as no surprise to anyone. You served your country and your state with courage, determination and pride. I think of you all the time. I remember all the good times we had. You were the best brother and friend anyone could ask for. You could always make me smile or laugh even when I was mad. I miss that sense of humor of yours. I miss all the times we talked. But I know you died doing what you loved. You died doing your job the right way. I am so proud of you.

Dave,

You are missed everyday, that certainly goes without saying. Everyday I have to drive by that spot to get to my post. But each time I do, it is a reminder that I have been given yet another day to do the job that you loved so much. So I don't take it for granted that I am alotted that opportunity. I just smile knowing that you are with me and all of us at SP Catskill while we are out on the road, there to keep us safe. We all know we have a lot to live up to because you were an awesome Trooper. While our hearts are still healing, just know Dave that you will never be forgotten.
Merry Christmas Dave!
