Officer Garcia,
On today, the 99th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Laredo. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 97th 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

History is invented. Before Annabel began this journey I thought you had died in Sabinas and your family moved here at this time. I am sorry I never knew you but even sorrier for Nani, my grandmother and your daughter, who had such a short time with you. May you rest in peace and know we all loved her and there for you, very, very much.
