Daddy, I miss you each and every day. You taught me to respect people and always be polite and friendly to strangers. I know you are always around me each day for the rest of my life. I will always love you and I always remember you.

Love Cindy B Rollins

I and my partner were the first two officers to get to Roy. We didn't think he was hurt as badly as he was.

Roy ---- were a great guy who was always smiling and had a caring attitude for everyone. Even though I only knew you for a year and a half, you taught me to have compassion for the people I encountered for the next 25 years.

Thanks for being there.

There are more heroes like you in heaven. I miss you and will always love you. The flicking of the candle light will always be lit in my heart.

Daddy, you have always been my hero. What I have went through a while back made me stronger because I remembered how strong of a man you were. You were and always be by my side. Even though you are not here with me I know I can always talk to you. I will always love you.

Uncle Roy, I remember coming to visit you as a child. The time you took for me and the kindness you showed has always been remembered. I became a police officer several years after you made the ultimate sacrifice that fateful day. I have personally spoken to your fellow deputies who had the opportunity to work with you. The courage you displayed and the integrity with which you did your job makes me very proud, not only as a great nephew, but as a police officer also. I have told your story to many of my co-workers over the years. In doing so, there is no way to tell how many lives YOU have saved. Thank you for your service.

It's been 30 years now of the tragic event that took your life. You are miss everyday. Daddy you are always in my mind and in my heart. I know you gave me the strength to help me make it through the tough time I had to go through last year. I wish you were still here. I love you always.

They will never know your sweet touch and your cute thunb tricks you showed us as children to make us laugh with awe.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
