My brother, I sit here praying that you are in the presence of the Lord in heaven. I too am a Border Patrol Agent. I know you and today you were assigned as my silent partner for the rest of my career. I will carry your memory with me with honor as I patrol the very same border that you patrolled. Rest in Peace my brother. You will never be forgotten for your great courage and sacrifice. We know your story here at our agency and I look forward to one day meeting you in heaven. You are gone but never forgotten.

As I see it, the Border Patrol Agents have one of the toughest jobs in law enforcement. Not only do you have a job akin to blocking a flood with a handful of sandbags, but in this day and age where it seems like every illegal is given the thumbs up. It cannot be easy. Yet, you men and women of the United State Border Patrol still get out there and do what's right, day in and day out, often as we've seen, in harsh and unforgiving conditions and facing some dangers most of us could not imagine.

Inspector McCalib, on this 86th anniversary of your brutal murder, I wish to thank you and all of your colleagues for what you do. You are truly heroes.

God Bless and may your eternal rest be always peaceful, 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

As I look at the faces of the men and women here, I see the faces of my co-workers. I can imagine each of them shooting the bull and swapping war stories at choir practice as the meat sizzles on the grill. I see them laughing, pranking and teasing their fellow agents, as we often do when we relieve stress. I wish that each of them were still here to share the good times.

And I feel compelled to look at each of the faces here and remember…to remember that each of them made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and we should NEVER forget them or their service.

Too often the sacrifices of those who serve our country are overlooked or casually dismissed by the very public they served so selflessly. But WE should never forget them…each and every one of them. May they each rest in peace eternally in God’s loving embrace.

You are the uncle that I never met, but your sister my mother talked of you very lovingly and kept you in her heart always. Out of six brothers you were her favorite. I know you were a good and kind man and I am sorry you had to die before I was born. But we will meet some day when we all come togother in heaven. God Bless all of you who protect our borders and keep you safe. 1-6-2008
