To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary year 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.

My father clipped a picture of Oscar Hope from a newspaper shortly after he was shot. The caption says "Many are the stories told of the horsemanship of Detective Oscar Hope, who was killed in a gun battle... Saturday night. He was one of the best broncho busters in Texas. The accompanying photograph shows him on one of the first "mounties" to be used for downtown traffic work." Dad took the time to mount the clipping on card stock. He would have been 19 at the time. If anyone has info about Hope's family, I'd be interested in contacting them to see if there's a connection. Thanks, from a member of a Law Enforcement family.
