To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 49th 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

I wish I could have known you. It is hard to believe you have been gone 47 years, 1 day.

I Love You,

Hi Ernie - It's awfully hard to believe that in three more days you'll have been gone for 44 years. You and I served together at the Delaware Post for a very short time. You were a cadet dispatcher and I was a new boot trooper ("Patrolman" in those days)fresh from the Academy. I always knew you'd make a great officer, because you had the cool manner and temperment that it took to be one. You weren't on very long when you were killed, and it sure took the wind out of all the guys at Delaware who served with you. I hope you were able to watch over your family, and that you've had a pleasant journey. Until we all meet again. Tell Skraba that I said "Hi".

I attended the Ohio State Highway Patrol's memorial service for the first time this past May and was moved by the dedication the Patrol has for remembering it's fallen officers. I was also greatly moved by the number of family members who come back year after year to honor their loved ones...some who have died over 50 years ago.

My boyfriend is a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. I have always been proud of his job and his affiliation with the Patrol, but am even more so after attending the service. People always use the "words" "you will never be forgotten. The family of OSHP live by those words.
