To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 17th 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 solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both their pain and pride are forever.

Although i was to young to remember
I met you once before
But no one knew then
As much as we know now
the pain we went threw
The fighting, the Laughing
the crying, the works
All the tears we went though
just to say it hurts

The love in our hearts
Your words we treasure

I said a little prayer today for Corrections Officer Brown and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

I never thought that this would be the way I had to express my feelings to a loved one. You were my Big Brother, the one who I always called on when I needed something. (Money for a struggling college student (smile), A ride from the airport when I was coming home to visit or just to hear your voice.) It seems like just yesterday when the family would gather at mommy's house to share a laugh or unwind from the week.

Big Brother, The whole family Misses you!!

There hasn't been a day that has gone by where I try to hold on to the memories of how you were. If I could only remember one thing about you, it would be that I always thought you were a GREAT MAN. A man that I would only hope my son, your Nephew, would be as fortunate as to become one day.
I love you and Wish that you were here!

Your Lil Sister, Michelle

To my Brother, Roll model and Hero:

I still can't believe you're gone. You were taken from us to soon. Since I could remember I always wanted to be like you. From playing sports to joining the military or being in law enforcement. Anywhere you went I would have followed. Thank you for being a great roll model. I was fortunate to have you in my life as my Big Brother. I will miss growing old with you. You are truly my HERO. I miss you.

I Love You.
Rest in peace.

"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.

If the officer must give his life
Then we must pick up the weight
We must cry and tear, give a salute
And comfort his family of his fate

The brass will be more polished tomorrow
As we strive to be at our best
We will choke with overwhelming feelings
As we lay our brother down to rest

He never thought of him self as a hero
But only a defender of what was right
From the early morning details
To the load parties late at night

The honor guard is ready now
And flag is folded crisp
We fight the pain, as we stand shoulder to shoulder in the rain
My dear god, we were never prepared for this

We recall his last laugh we can
And cherish his last remembered sight
We will watch out children more closely now
And hold the wife twice as close tonight

We must where the uniform more proudly tomorrow
And remember his sacrifice was true
We must never forget our fallen comrade
Because we are Policemen too

No brave and courageous officer should be without a reflection.
You got the bad guy and ended his reign of terror on innocent people.
Your bravery unequalled, you rest in the House of the Lord.
Rest in peace, Hero.
