Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and first 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.

Dear Grandpa:
Your wife, my Grandmother, Rosa, was an NPD police matron at the time you lost your life. She never re-married, and raised all four children. All lived a normal lifespan. Me, too, as I was born 11-23-32.
Just wanted to thank you for being what, and who, you were.
I have two grandsons, so the line is continuing through 2007. I was your only grandchild.
Thanks for your service to the NPD.
