I pray for you officer Coleman, since I have heard of your name. About a week now. I will continue to do so... I ask that you forgive and forget the past: let it remain as the past: a distant memory... move forward so that you may find peace. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, another victim of psychopaths who wanted to play God... They are now facing the one, true God... They be in deep, deep trouble. Peace sir. Thank you for your service.. You have made life for all of us, better.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th 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.
