Reflections for Sheriff Peter R. Lanahan

I'm so sorry this happened. I hope Wild Bill Hickock, a distant relative of mine had nothing to do with it.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and thirty-ninth 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 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.
