Officer Manes, a lot has changed in law enforcement since your passing; some good, some bad. But I can assure you that you and your fellow LEOs surely paved the way for me and my fellow LEOs to continue the good fight that all lawmen have sworn to fight. Rest in peace brother!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd 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.

I never knew you -- my father was very young when you passed away at the hand of a criminal.

Your 3rd generation neice - my daughter -- will graduate from Police Academy to follow in your footsteps this year,
2009. She is the flag bearer in her class. She gradutes 3 days before the anniversary of your death -- March 6, 2009.

I post this in tribute to you.
