Reflections for Detective Frank Burns

Cousin Frank,
Though you were gone long before I was born, I am very proud of you and your actions taken to combat crime. You were taken from our family way before your time and we remember you always.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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.
