Your heroism and service is honored today, the 43rd 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

Hello, Grandfather,
I wasn't fortunate enough to meet you, but you are in my heart! You were taken 6 months before my birth and my brother Jason found this place that I could say what was in my heart. I know that you were a great father and my mother and aunt's tell us that. I just wanted to leave this message to say that I will look forward to seeing you and my Grandmother when the time is right! I am proud to have a Grandfather like you!

Although i never met my grandfather because he passed almost 5 years before i was born.I feel i know him from the stories my mother has shared with me.I know he loved to fish and she still says he fried up the best catfish she has ever tasted.Which brings to mind evenings shared with family, on cold alabama nights, over a warm home cooked meal.I know he was a loving father and I am certain a day does not pass in which my mother does not miss him dearly.I want to thank my grandpa for giving his life so that others could be safe.I will remember you always and the sacrifice you made.I love you and you will always live in a special place in my heart.I wish I could have met you just once.I am sure we would have been good friends.Rest in peace always.

Your watch ended the day I was born, now I am a police officer. I hope I can serve up to the standards you have set.
