Your heroism and service is honored today, the 24th 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 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.

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

Thought of you today as I do many days. I miss you deeply, but find peace in knowing you rest in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I rejoice greatly in anticipation and look forward to seeing you again. (1 Peter 1:3-7)

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Agent Kramer,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you to you and your partner for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Brother Kramer,
I worked with your father, Sgt. Kramer, NPD, and he was so proud of you when you joined the Norfolk Police Department. We were all proud and happy for you when you left NPD to become a Special Agent with NCIS. A tragic accident cut short your dedicated service to your God and Country. You are missed Brother. Rest in Peace.

People often say after high school, I'll never forget you, but I truly have never forgotten you. I still think about how you once stopped my mom but couldn't give her a ticket because you'd eaten at our house so many times, and how you looked in on her after my dad died.Your life, service, and sacrifice won't ever be forgotten by me. Love, Becky
