Your heroism and service is honored today, the 51rst 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.

Auxiliary often means “Volunteer” which of course, means no pay, but that didn’t stop you and Patrolman Crittendon from doing your duty. Sgt. Goss, on this 48th anniversary of your brutal murder at the hands of a couple of filthy thugs, I simply wish to say Thank You for your service to your community and to that of your country in the Great War. You proved yourself a hero in a number of ways and it’s sad that it took this incident for all of us to know it.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
