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.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the fifth anniversary year 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace and strength for everyone who misses and loves Charles . We will never forget the sacrifice made by each of the 9/11 heroes and their families.

I know you're in heaven now. I will always remember your positive outlook in life.
You inspired my son Rey to join the service and he's currently stationed overseas.

Charlie, we worked a lot of good cases together in Peekskill. You will always be known as a "cops cop". It was truly a pleasure my friend. May you now rest in peace knowing that you served your country and community with pride.
