I drive to Indy from LADOGA and see his marker, say a prayer for him and bless his family, can feel his energy when I pass it, had to look this up, He really is a special soul, now I have a picture of him to bless band thank for all the good things he gave in life!

I drove by the marker yesterday and looked up to see why it was placed there. Very sad indeed. This same type of accident recently happened in Oklahoma with a trooper as he was killed while investigating a wreck. Troopers are special people and hero's in every sense of the word. I am grateful there are people out there who are willing to sacrifice all to protect us. God Bless.

He was my father. I remember the date of death very well. I was twelve years old. My oldest sister, Bonnie, was sixteen, my sister, Janet, was fourteen and my brother, Mark, was eight. We continue to miss my Dad 47 years later. He was a good and humorous man. He had many friends and people still stop me to talk about him today although many friend are now dead.

Fallen, Never Forgotten

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 46th 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.

Rest In Peace.

Our Greatest Fear
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
too many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
" Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.
