Reflections for Deputy Sheriff James Cornett

I'm proud to say that a man of such honor was my great grandfather. I hope to carry on his passion as a first responder.

Sheriff James Cornett was my grandpa...I never got to know him because he chose a career that would lead to his death...he left a widow (my grandma) and 10 kids behind.
All of the mentioned have passed away. We are left with our memories.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to be the first to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 69th 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know that both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Rest In Peace.
