To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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 pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Thank you Uncle Mark for your guidance and dicipline. As a youth I had the unfortunate opportunity to run afoul of Uncle Mark. He whipped me with his belt on the side of the road where I had chosen to take my buddies for a joy ride while drinking. I had just turned 16 and had to go one further than borrowing my Dad's car. I also took a 6 pack of beer from his workshop fridge. Although my heart stopped with every ring of the home phone, he never told my parents. He didn't have to as he knew he had reached my inner being!
Thanks Uncle Mark for instilling in me a sense of responsability and more importantly...accountability. Commit the crime...suffer the consequences. We love and miss you.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

My Uncle Mark was a Giant among men....not only in stature, but most importantly in empathy. The biggest lesson he taught me is to remember that EVERYBODY is SOMEBODY'S child....or father, or mother, or sister, or brother. He was a gentle giant that I will forever remember with respect and adoration.

Thank you, Uncle Mark, for all you gave me.....
