To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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.

Officer Hollis, the fate of the man responsible for your murder is a just one but it didn’t bring you back. Those who knew and loved you could never replace you and the City of Quincy suffered a tremendous loss to its fine Police Department. You truly are a hero and you have not been forgotten. On this 81st anniversary of your passing, I salute you.

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

Dear Uncle Alfred (The Uncle I lost and never knew)

You gave the last full measure of devotion - a sacrifice which remains with us survivors today. We pray for strength to uphold your honor -- with the courage/determination to face those who would harm our families and communities.

Rest in the eternal sleep -- which awaits us - and watch over us until we meet.
