Reflections for Lieutenant Steven L. Cioffi

Another year in heaven Steve. This being the 20th anniversary of that tragic day that took so many of us and, continue to do so. Many of us are still here. I'm still here and take every day as if it is a gift. To your loving wife and children, I am hoping that they get stronger for the great loss and, that you watch over them always. Until we meet again.

One of the many, many amazing men and women who gave so selflessly that day and the many days that followed. Thank you for your service and rest in peace always knowing that your sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Steve was the perfect balance between cop and boss. As a sergeant, I was often frustrated by conflicting orders from the brass, but Lt Cioffi could always talk me down, imparting wisdom and always smiling. He never seemed to take anything too seriously. I think I was able to pay him back just a little bit by introducing him to The Wire; a show he ended up binging and loving. The job, the city, the world, and certainly his family, lost a great man on this day, 7 years ago.

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.

You have joined a list of people who, in spite of the dangers, both known and unknown, gave time and put out effort to help at the site of what will, God Willing remain the worst terror attack in United States history. May nothing ever surpass this terrible event and though I pray no more names are ever added to the aforementioned list you now occupy, in my gut, I know that list will grow. You are ALL heroes!

God Bless and may you FOREVER Rest in Peace.

We cannot fully honor our heroes of the present without honoring our heroes of the past, Your heroism and service is honored today, the 2nd 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 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. We shall never forget any of our 9/11 heroes.

Rest In Peace.
