Eternal Rest Grant unto you Tommy.
You came to mind today as I came across
some old pictures of the gang from Queens Village.
You were a person of integrity and kindnes.
Those culprits robbed the world that night.
You are remembered regularly at Mass.

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.
