John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

6 years later. Time goes fast. I never knew this Police Officer, but some LODD's just have a way of sticking out in my memory... This one resurfaced this year to mine. I am praying for his fellow officers and family, especially today... Keep fighting the good fight.

My heart still aches. Gone but not forgotten cuz. I remember us both being in your sister's wedding and us having a ball, and you were telling me you want to be a police officer, cause you knew I was a deputy. Knowing you are with the Lord keeps me at peace.......but still greatly missed.

I regret that I did not know Officer Torbit but I am honoring his memorty by riding in his honor as part of Team Raleigh in the Law Enforcement United Memorial Ride. Rest in peace dear brother, you are gone before your time. For those who knew him, mourn not his death. Rather, celebrate his life and all of the good that came from his time on earth.

It's been almost a yr and I'm still struggling to accept your death.this is my first time even speaking about you publicaly. I remember the countless nights when we where young on the phone all night until it was time to go to school. Then we'd be so tired in class. I remember us planning our outfits for your senior prom. We broke up two weeks before the prom.. We would laugh about the reasons in our thirties What a young love. I was so nervous and excited when u found me. I could see you were too. So many new hopes and ideas that we shared. Again not to be. I thank GOD for choosing me to be one of the people in ur life as it drew to an end. At least I had those few months with you.Ibwill always wonder what could have been. Rest easy my friend. You will forever be stamped on my heart.

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 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 love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

May his loved ones continued to be supported by their law enforcement family and other police survivors. Our family grieves with you and for you. To William's family, you are in my heart's embrace today. With the anniversary day and your first Christmas without your beloved, I know this is a very difficult time.
