Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd 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.

I am the great grandson of Silas W. Cope, the grandson of Tuck Cope and the son of Sy C. Cope. I am a native of California and I have recently relocated to Longview Texas. If there is anyone out there that can tell me more about the Cope's I would love to hear from you. I plan on visiting Wewoka in the near future (I have never been there) to see where my father grew up.

I'm the great great grand daughter of Silas W. Cope.
Tuck Cope was my Great Grandfather and Sy C. Cope is my grandfather. I just happened to be searching and discovered this site. I reside in Arizona.
Elizabeth, I would love to chat with you about the Cope history if you know any.

I'm almost overcome by emotion and joy at discovering this site!
This is the first account I've found of the death of my great grandfather. He had a first family in Quanah,TX, and later remarried and fathered twin sons in Wewoka, "Nip" and "Tuck". Several years after his death, my grandmother (his daughter Birdie Lee Cope Hood) received a wonderful letter from Tuck's wife, Lavonia, referring to my grandmother as "Dear New Sister."
If there are any Copes still living in the area of Wewoka, I would love to hear from them.

Another officer without a reflection(s); that's unacceptable, and I pledge to you, Assistant Chief Cope, to do my best to recognize you and others who made the ultimate sacrifice...for all of us. Rest easy, warrior, the fight goes on.
