Marcia. I just recently retired from the Stamford Police Department after almost 37 years on the job.
I remember when you became a Stamford Police Officer. We crossed paths numerous times over the years.
I was very happy to see that you are being Honored on this site. God bless you and your family.
It was a pleasure to have worked with you. Rest in Peace.

Having gone to the Police Academy with Marcia, she was a very bright and well-read officer. She thrived as a school resource officer and enjoyed her position within the police dept. She was loved by her family and friends. She will be sorely missed.

Having been Honored here on ODMP.ORG is a true honor for her and her family. I wish her and her family God Speed.

The teens involved in that fight that eventually took your life should be made to reflect on the incident each and every February 3 to show just what can happen when common sense and restraint are ignored. For you to have sustained such injuries, that fight must have been more than fisticuffs between two angry teens.

Had those involved used an ounce of sense, they would have ceased their actions upon the arrival of a Police Officer. It's apparent they did not and it is them who are to blame for you being taken from those who knew and loved you best.

Intentional? Doubtful. Reckless and stupid? Absolutely. A lesson should be taught for all those involved in a fight. Sadly, no lesson will be learned unless it's reinforced over and over again. If those teens are made to reflect on the harm they caused, maybe they can pass on that lesson to others and maybe the chances of another officer losing his or her life will be drastically cut. Stupidity will never leave us, so we can only hope for a drastic cut, not an end to the problem.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Sister.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 11th 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.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace
