On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Joe, I will always remember you. We had some good memories working details together at Logan Airport in the late 80s. You also saved my life in Taunton when we encountered Carl Larry Collins and I think about that often.
Thanks again, my friend!! Keep watch over us!

Thank you for your heroism.

Joe, not having you with us for 25 years makes for a more incomplete world. Not a day goes by that you aren't loved and missed by so many. But no matter how many years go by, you're still with us in so many ways....Miss you Buddy.

I had the priviliege (but Joe would say it's not a privilege) of meeting Joe a few times while on the Framingham Police Dept. He was a very humble guy and a regular one at that. I thought it was so exciting to hear he was learining to fly the MSP helicopter and his past experiences in his duties.
Great guy and I was glad to have met him....

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 22nd 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.

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Thanks to your friends for sharing their devotion to you through their reflections.

Joe,

Incredibly, it has been eighteen (18) years. There is not a day that goes by that I do not remember you infectious smile and quick wit.

When in the gym at GHQ, I almost expect you to appear-pounding away on the Stairmaster or as I told you many times: "The Stairway to Nowhere."

I think you chose the Stairmaster for your training because it was the hardest....making you the BEST.

We all miss you, Brother....Rest Well.....
