Today, May 3, 2013 we had our "Fallen Officer Memorial" ceremony at the Rome Police Department. They remembered and honored my Great Grandfather - Joe Johnson. I have worked in law enforcement for 30 plus years and each year the memorial is more significant than the last. When my Great Grandfather was killed my Grandfather was just 12 years old. He never really got to know his dad. He went on to be raised by an amazing woman whom he loved dearly. Sadly, I never got to meet her either. I thank God everyday for the family that I am a part of and I am so proud to be related to a true Hero.

You are remembered today by a mother of a fallen officer. My son, Larry Lasater died when shot on April 23, 2005 during a foot pursuit of two bank robbers while serving with the Pittsburg, California Police Department.

Officer Johnson, your sacrifice is not forgotten. Rest in Peace. Your memory is honored and revered 89 years after your death and will continue to be.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Joseph gave to his community and the citizens of Georgia, and the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 23, 1921.
