Your heroism and service is honored today, the second 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 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 solace for all those who called you beloved for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Tanya, My heart goes out to you and the family. Mark was always a nice guy in high school who liked to make people smile. He will never be forgotten. I wish there was a better way to express the sorrow that we all feel as words can never truly show the emotions. May he rest in peace.

Thank you, Officer Barret, for your time and dedication, and for the ultimate sacrifice you made to keep our world as safe as possible. Thank you is such an inadequate way to tell you and your loved ones how much I appreciated all that you did for your fellow man, yet, it is all I have to offer. Your place in Heaven must be a glorious one! My heart breaks for those who are mourning your passing right now. May God be with Officer Barret's family, friends and fellow officers as they go through such a difficult time in their lives. RIP
