Reflections for Police Officer Michael Paul Roman


I stumbled across this today and so many memories of the Academy flooded my mind. You and I didn't become best of friends or even stay in touch once our careers got going but, in the way that only God's hand can manage, you made a distinct impression on me and the Officer I was to become.

Your easy nature and quiet confidence were a model for what a good cop should be. I wish I had gotten to know you better. I wish more people would have had the opportunity to as well.

I am praying for all the people who love and miss you as I write this. I trust that they know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and understand that they will see you again.

You are not forgotten today on this mournful anniversary, nor will you ever be. Thank you for your service to our community.

You shall live in the hearts of those who loved you, those who admired you, and those you helped in their times of need; thus you will never be forgotten.

Most respectfully Officer Roman, although I never knew you, I dedicate this day to your memory.

Brother, I have been thinking of you a lot lately. Thinking of how things are so different now. Wow, you would be 48 years old. I used to dream of you, when you first left me, but I have not had a dream about you in a very long time. I just want to see you again. I want to hear your voice. I want to hug you. I want you to know how very proud I am of you. I wrote a poem for you, mom and Ray.

I miss you in the morning,
I miss you in the night.
I miss you if it's dark outside,
and even if it's light.
I miss you when it's raining,
I miss you when it's not,
I miss you when it's cold outside,
and even when it's hot.
I miss you when I go to sleep,
I miss you when I wake up,
I miss the sound of your laugh,
I miss your very voice.
I hate that you have left me,
I know you had not choice.
I miss your great big bear hugs,
I miss the way you smell.
How long will I miss you?
Time will never tell.
I love and miss y'all so much!!

You are not forgotten brother. When we worked together at Central Patrol, we had our fun catching the "bad guys". I can't believe it's been 20yrs. I won't forget your wife clutching your badge at your funeral service. I try to be extra vigilant during pursuits because of what happened to you, and because of that, I'm sure it kept me from getting hurt. God bless you and your family.

IT has been 20 years. You would think by now I would have put you in the past. I still love you and miss you. So many changes now. Mikaela is married. Marissa is in college. The years that seemed to crawl after your passing: now have sped up over the years. You will always look 27 but I have aged with time. My once dark hair is now silver lined. My eyes look older. Sadness and grief has taken its toll on me throughout these years. I try to be happy but there is that hole that can never be filled. Marissa gave a Legacy party in remembrance of you to celebrate 20 years since you went home with our Lord. It was a nice turnout. You are still missed and remembered regardless of how much time passes.

Always and Forever,
Your wife... Suelema

I miss you. I miss what could have been and so much more. Our girls are grown now and are living basically on their own. I see them once in a while but sometimes it is not enough. A mother"s heart never lets go. My Dad is buried beside you now and it is so painful to see the best men in my life gone. Life seems so empty sometimes. Throughout all these years you are still missed by your children and me and I know Mando and Ricky still miss you.
I love you still,

it has been a while since I last wrote to you on this site. Marissa our baby is a Senior in High School. Kaela is in her junior year in college. Where has time gone. So many things I wished I could have shared with you.. so many. Mainly, all the things our girls did. Riss is on yearbook as a photographer and she loves it. I look at her and I really know you have been gone a while.. a very long while. She is beautiful and athletic like you. She does weird antics that you use to do and at times it drives me crazy and at other times ...its endearing. I wish I would have been the better parent, the fun one..I guess I am too serious. Its a bittersweet year for me this time. Our chapter together is coming to an end. Once Riss graduates all of are hope and dreams that we planned for our kids will be completed and all that is left is their epilogue. You would be so proud of our daughters..I am. I will always love you...Always

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 16th 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 am sure this fine young officer is proud veof how well his wife and children have soldiered on, for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

January 6, 2010 and I first met at the age of eight years old in little league. You were as kind hearted a person then as you were to the very end. Your loss was huge to everyone you came into contact with and those whose lives you had yet to touch. You will never be forgotten brother!
