Reflections for Correctional Officer Charles Robert Elder

On this 61st anniversary of your brutal murder, all I can do is hope and pray that those thugs who took your life faced true justice, if not while still held in Pennsylvania or held in the afterlife.

You were doing what I consider one of, if not the toughest job in the criminal justice system and each and every Corrections Officer who pulls his/her weight, free from corruption deserves the highest amount of respect that can be given. Thank you for your service.

God Bless and may you continue to rest in eternal peace, Brother.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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.
