Your heroism and service is honored today, the 88th 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.

My grandfather's family legacy was huge. Having been raised in the Deep South, his legend gave his decendents a positive family legacy and helped shape all of our futures. The story told in our family is that our great-grandfather was killed by a black man in Scotlandville, Louisiana. The crowd wanted to lynch the man. As the story goes, our great-grandmother hoisted our grandfather, Spencer Day, a very young boy, up on the back of a buckboard where he pled for the black man's life. His life was spared. What a positive message for our family! It was also told that my great-grandmother finished my great-grandfather's term and that she became the first female sheriff in Louisiana. I know that is a disputed fact, but it made a wonderful story for us decendents. The legacy of compassion, kindness and generosity even in the face of great loss is a family treasure. I am so proud of my Day heritage.
