Although I never met you I have thought of you often. I wondered what you looked like, what your voice sounded like, and what it would have been like to have you with us. I am proud that you were my grandfather an I hope you are proud to have me for your granddaughter. We will meet someday but for now you are forever in my heart.

So sad, but proud to say this hero was my great-grandfather. Thank you for your service and for everything you did to take care of your family. Without you, I would never be here enjoying this life that so many take for granted. XO

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 73rd 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 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.
