Miss you; your hearty laugh, your quick sense of humor, your unwavering sense of "right", and your outspoken criticism of those who placed self - interest above the moral right. Love you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 40th 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

"Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei! Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion, et Tibi votum in Ierusalem."
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
May peace be your dwelling this day, and your home in Holy Sion. May you be received by Him Who created you, by Him Who redeemed you at the price of His blood, by Him Who hath said, through the mouth of the prophet: "I have loved you with an everlasting love therefore, in pity, have I drawn you unto Myself."
God grant you rest and the glory of the resurrection on teh last day! "Xpistos avesti ek vekpon thavatov thavato... Christ is risen from the dead and by death He has destroyed death and to those in the graves He hath bestowed life!"

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
