Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and fifty-fifth 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.

Rest In Peace.

No officer who gave his life in the line of duty should have an empty reflection page. Thank you Officer Sheldon for your sacrifice. May you always be remembered for your bravery.
