Policeman Hathaway - Wow, three days earlier an LAPD officer was killed in an on-duty T/C, then you were taken away by a robbery suspect. Your courage and dedication to duty should stand as an inspiration to us all. You have become much more than just a name on a monument to me, now. We carry on, in our way, as you expect us to...for there is no other path we know other than duty and sacrifice above self. May God bless you and grant you eternal rest.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th 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.

This man was my grandfathers uncle. He sounds like a hero to me. Rest well and if you can look in on me from time to time, I got the police bug from you I guess no one else in our family tree does it.
