Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd 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.

Officer Buchanan---

~~~Touch The Sky --- Kiss The Sun~~~

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
Let me see you smile…

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
Soar up high just for a while.

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
Let your soul be free…

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
Love someone unconditionally.

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
Let me take your hand…

Touch the sky and kiss the sun,
In time you’ll understand.
