Officer Copeland,

I never had the chance to meet you, but I will always be grateful for you raising such a wonderful son... a man who has taught me so much about life and it's beauty... a father that loved his father dearly & talks about you all the time. I am honored to be your grandson!

RIP Grandfather

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 56th 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 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.
