A Hero in Heaven, always remembered and never forgotten.

It's been so many years since we got the news of your death, yet sometimes it seems like yesterday. Gerry took the news so hard, being the last one to see you, talk to you and that you took the complaint instead of him. Little did we know we'd be losing him soon after. Both of you were gone too soon. When I think of all the things in life you never experienced, and all of the opportunities you both missed out on it reminds me to cherish what I have. Your sacrifices are not forgotten. Rest in peace.

I love you and miss you Kevin. So nice to see that you are honored and remembered by the lucky ones who knew you and even some special people who did not get the chance to meet you.
I know you and Jerry are watching over our family and friends.
Please know I think of you often and I'm very proud of you.
No matter how much time passes, you will NEVER be forgotten.

Bunk mate,

Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you. We (59th) have entered into our 21st year. Some would say it's been a long haul and others can't believe where the time has gone. So, with so much that has passed our thoughts of you and Jerry have never diminished. Love you Brother.

Thank you to all who still serve and continue to remember my brother. It meant so much to him to be a member of the Delaware State Police. He was very proud to be a Trooper and looked forward to a long career with such a wonderful organization. Your thoughts and prayers mean so much to our family.
He is gone but will NEVER be forgotten.
Stay safe out there-please.
It is very heartwarming to read your comments.
Please keep them coming.
You are all forever in our prayers.

We just wanted to let you and your family know that as we approach our 20 year anniversary, you and Gerry have not been forgotten. As we reminisce of our days in the academy, you guys are often fondly remembered. The sacrifice that you guys have made has been a constant reminder of how fragile we really are and how quickly life can be taken away. Rest in peace my Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the nineteenth 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. A mother's love never diminishes a fraction, and I am sure your mom spent many sleepless nights in anquish over her beloved's son death.

Rest In Peace.

"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.
