To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 134th anniversary yer 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

May you walk the beat in heaven. looking down always with a watchful eye on your officers of today. I retired and wanted you to know that you will not be forgotten. Thank you for protecting me for over 30 years of police work. I still have a friend with 17 years to go. I cannot be there. Please keep her protected.
