To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. .Your heroism and service is honored today, the 121rst 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 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 stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....

Gone over a hundred years ago,
but time goes by so fast.
You did not know me, I did not know you,
strangers in future and past.

I have little doubt that your life touched mine
in some way or another.
Something you did for someone else,
who in turn did the same for a brother.

I've learned actions are connected,
cause and effect, you see?
That good you did for someone then,
came up through time to me.

I'm not a peace officer,
though now the task is mine.
to do some good for others,
and continue with that line.

In rememberance of all of the fallen.
