My husband Celso Infante Garcia is first cousin to Samuel. Samuel had visited us in Brownsville, TX and the evening we shared, we all went to dinner at 'The Drive Inn' in Matamors, Mexico. It was a great evening for all of us, he had great respect and love for my mother-in-law who was his aunt, he adored Celso and our young daughter whom he loved so much. As a relative I could see he had a lot of love and respect for the family. He is dearly missed.

We named our Son after Samuel Infante, he would have been my Son's great uncle. He never lived to see his three Beautiful grand daughters, or got to grow old with his Beautiful spicy wife Paulline. He is greatly missed by all his family.GB

The death of three law enforcment officers must have been a devastating blow to your community. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 41rst 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.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace
