It is now 60 years since your passing and I have been graced with 60 years of life. We shared this earth for 2 months and 6 days as I was born on Grandma's birthday. I have the Flag that was presented to our family for the service you gave to our country as a Investigator for the U S Treasury for over 20 years and your service overseas with the US Army Co E 439 Supply Train during the Great War as well.
I, like you have two daughters and my grandson will receive your flag when the time comes so you will be remembered as he knows of you service by asking what that Flag in the case means and represents.
There is now a shopping center covering most of the swamp where your watch ended. My daughter and her family shop there often for they live near by and we all think of you just by passing that location in today's Tampa.
I was given your surname as my middle name at birth just as my grandson now has my surname for his.

It is with the greatest honor and respect that you are remembered and will be for many generations of our family.
Thank you for your service and dedication to our country.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 60th 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.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know that both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Rest In Peace.
