To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 51rst 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

Game Protector De La Mater, your death 45 years ago was no less tragic today than it was then. You made the supreme sacrifice for the People of New York State and the Earth as a whole. For your efforts, I thank you and even after all this time, I mourn your loss. I know your family has felt you with them and that you never truly left.

God Bless and May you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
