Grandpa, although I never met you, I am so very proud to be your granddaughter. Your son, Robert, turned out to be an incredible father and your grandson, my brother Kevin, an amazing man as well. You are missed and loved despite the fact you died when my dad was so young. You have three greatgrandchildren and we are all so grateful for your sacrifice.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 48th 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.

It must have been so difficult for your son to have you die in his arms but as horrible as it was, maybe it brought you and he comfort to be together as you took your last breath.
