Hello to all readers.
My name is Cheryl Gibson, oldest child of Herman Lee George.
Siblings: Deryl
Errol
Trena
(Herman Jr., I've never met. I would love to meet and get to know)

I thank God for my Daddy. We called him by his name Herman. That was at his request.

From as far as I could remember Herman told me that he would never see me graduate from school, meet by boyfriends...

So he started this journey of trying to prepare me for his exit.

Hygiene was important:
Don't eat from people with dirty nails...

Reading was important:
He encouraged me to read "The Bill of Rights" with a $10.00 incentive...

He care about even the material things that I wanted: a bike, a brand new piano, an accourdian, a harmonica...

He taught me how to cook:
He started off with Jiffy Cake mix, he bragged about them to his friends when they came over and gave them a piece. I just knew I could cook.

I was important:
Herman was my HERO!
He took care of a situation at my elementary school, my teacher would discipline us by sticking us with pins. When Herman found out, it never happens again to any kid in my class. HE never said anything about his conversation with the teacher.

Herman actually saved my life from a kidnaper in our neighborhood looking for little black girls. The man got arrested.

This world was important:
Herman spent time traveling with us:
Washington DC
Lousiana to met his family there...

Church was important:
I remember him singing
"Mercy" at churches.

God was very important:
He would sit me on his lap numerous time to sing, "No Coward Soldier"

There are so many memories! From the many treasures my Dad instilled in my ten years with him, the most important was that he loved me and do not be a coward Soldier!

When I think of what I could instill in my children and grandson that would would help to carry them through, I have remembered these things.

Thank you Herman.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing my Dad with JESUS!

I thank God that he had time to talk with JESUS and do what He felt he needed before his exit!

Remember we all will live eternally somewhere, Heaven or Hell. I say to the readers, spend time now with JESUS.

Momma, Mary Ann, I treasure you and thank God at age 82, God has kept us with you!
You have done a great job Momma, thank you! I love you Momma!
You taught me so many things also. Most of all that God is real and that God will keep you, if you want to be kept!

I'm so thankful to declare, I am a kept woman of God!
Beloved of God, the Apple of His Eye!

Just checking in and this time decided to leave a post. God is good and He is my Lord and Savior. We are all well. Mom is in great health she's 77(?). I missed you tremendously at my wedding, the births of my two children, and now my grandchildren. I am who I am because of your blood that runs through me and by the grace of God. 35 years married to a man you would absolutely admire. He's better than good to me! I often wish they would do a Cold Case on your story. . . and this time solve the case. At any rate, want you to know though I was the youngest, we have never forgotten you. My fondest memories was watching you play the piano and sing to Mom, a certain row boat ride in Louisiana and a cross country trip you took us on to see the Capitol. I will always love you, you favorite daughter (wink, wink) Striker.

I knew and liked Herman George. I was a reporter for KGO-TV, the ABC station, from 1965-to 1970. I covered night time crime for a couple of those years with my cameraman Lance Brisson. We knew Herman during that time. He was one tough dude and had many enemies on the street. Lance and I were there in Hunter's Point right after Herman was assassinated. I regret that his murder was never solved. I do remember they had good suspects among black radicals, but not enough good evidence to charge them.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 42nd 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I hope to meet some of your family at a NORCAL COPS function someday.

Rest In Peace
