Many, many thanks for finally recognizing and honoring my great grandpa, Patrolman Otto Brown. Unfortunately, I was never able to meet him but have heard countless stories over the years of what a loving, honest, and principled man he was. He was committed to excellence as a police officer and to the service of his community. He was the love of my great grandma Goldie Brown's life. When he passed she was left with six children all under the age of 13. She never dated or remarried and she ensured that his legacy was passed on to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Even though there was no insurance provisions in 1930 for fallen officers, the Bellingham Police Department provided spiritual and emotional support as well as food packages on special occasions.

Thank you Grandpa for your service and sacrifice. I didn't have the honor to know you, but have always been proud of the heritage you passed down to our family. Rest In Peace.

Thank you to the person at the BPD for taking time for the honor and recognition after so many years.

To the family of Officer Brown, I apologize that it has taken so long for him to be recognized but it's never too late to honor him and thank him publicly for his service. Patrolman Brown will finally be forever remembered on the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial Wall in Olympia as well as the National Law Enforcement Memorial Wall in Washington DC in 2014.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
