My Faithful Servant

My faithful servant.
You were called upon to serve others.
You were asked to see, what no man should ever have to see.
To go through, what no man should ever have to go through.
But you did so with pride, honor, and integrity.

My faithful servant.
You were called upon to defend those, who could not defend themselves.
To provide justice to those, who did not respect it.
To lay down your life, if the time called for it.
Again, you did not question what was asked of you.
You did it with love, compassion, and loyalty.

My faithful servant.
In times of adversity, you prayed for strength.
In times of triumph, you praised your Lord.
You served your Country, State, and city proud.
Your service will forever be remembered by the many lives you’ve touched.

My faithful servant.
When your service on this earth is finally complete.
I will welcome you home with open arms.
I will embrace you and proclaim,
“Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

RIP my brother, the Lord has taken you home.

You are the missing piece to my heart


November 12, 2012

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 26th 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.

I pray for solace for all those who love and miss you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Kristine, you are in my heart's embrace today.
Rest In Peace.

Dad-I think about you often and miss you more than I can say; I wish that you could have met my sons, you would really enjoy them. I am the same age now as you were when you died, and it really hits home just how little time you were here. Kristine

I met you while I was in high school and my best friend dated your daughter. I remmember my respect for you then and have the same respect for you today. I often think of you when working near the border of our cities and will never forget the hero you are. Rest in peace brother. You will never be forgotten.

I'll never forget Steve. My scout car area, 5-2, borbered Grosse Pt. Pk Pd. We used to meet at the city limits and just shoot the breeze. Steve was about the only one who lifted any weights. My partner and I had just left the Ram's Horn Restaurant that night. Upon leaving, I would never know that it would be the last time I talked to Steve. God rest your soul, Steve. Your DPD buddy, Bill Gray

"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.

I, too, remember you for your quick sense of humor and wit. You were always so fun to be around and Sue and I loved to spend time at your house with you and Judy.

I will never forget getting the ride to school in your police car and the siren going off to announce that Sue and I were at school. We loved it, even though at the time, we probably acted like we didn't!!

Thanks, Steve, for making this world a beter place. Please watch over all of us.
