On March 8, 2013, I attended the funeral for two Santa Cruz officers and Leon Panetta gave the eulogy which I found helpful. It is 9 mins 47 seconds on youtube. Thank you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 99th anniversary 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.

Rest In Peace.
