To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to be among the first to post a reflection for you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 46th 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

I remember Uncle Paul's funeral as it was probably the first I ever attended. This is the first I've finally read of what actually happened. I am thankful that these stories remain through the years.

1967 seems so long ago, especially since you died before I was born, but the reflection by Anonymous puts it in perspective. Perhaps by now your sons are grown and have children of their own. If so, I hope your grandchildren feel as if they know you because of all the stories they've heard about what a brave officer and a great man their grandfather was. Thank you, Officer Emerson, for your service. You are not forgotten.

I remember as a young boy growing up in Port Arthur hearing about this great American hero death. This officer was killed after he and his partner surprised an burglar. He was shot to death and I can still remember after all these years how his death shocked our community. I latter became a Federal Agent and part of my wanting to be a law enforcement officer was in no small part due to this fine officer death. Officer Emerson your death was not in vain. I like some other people still remember you and your sacrifice.
