To My Grandfather, Officer Robert K. Nelson, a Man would I never got to meet, but who has helped inspire me to become the man I am today. I love and miss you very much! Mom and Granny talk about you all the time and I truly wish I could have just one day to sit down with you and talk about life. I know that you are in heaven looking down on me each and every day. I truly thank you for your service and please know that you have never been or never will be forgotten. Since you have been gone I have started a family of my own, which includes 2 of my own which share part of your name in remembrance of you. I keep photos of you on the book shelf so both your great granddaughter and great grandson will grow up knowing who you are and what type of sacrifice you made. Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 54th 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. I am sure you are proud of all family members who have continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know the pain and pride are forever. You are all in my heart's embrace, especially Robbin whose posts really touched me as I have a grandson who loves his daddy in heaven although he was born 2 1/2 months after my son was killed.

Rest In Peace.

Hey Dad,
Just wanted you to know you now have a big bouncy great grandson! 9 lbs, 2 ozs born 2-23-2012. He's got part of your name. He will grow up to make you proud! Your great grand-daughter is growing up and Mom says she has your eyes. She has part of your name too. Your grandson looks just like you, especially in his Deputy uniform. I miss you!
Much love,

Robbin Nelson

To My Father, Offier Robert K. Nelson, a man I never had the opportunity to meet. It's been over 50 years since your died, but trust me, you have never been forgotten. You were the love of my mother's life. Mom says you never knew I was on the way. You thought the morning sickness was a false alarm. It wasn't. I arrived approximatley 8 months after you died. They named me after you. Eveyone said I looked like you, I got your eyes. I also got your musical ability. Oh what fun we would have had writing and playing music together. All is not lost however. Your legacy and inspiration continues in others. Your father in law became a Sheriff. Your son in law became a Police Chief. Your grandson is just starting his career in law enforcement. Mom says he has your build and he looks dashing in a uniform. You are also a great grandpaw because your only grandson now has a daughter. She has your eyes too. Wonder if she will get your musical ability? Wonder if she too wants to serve others in the same manner as you? Yes, it's been 50 years but you should know - your life lives on in others and you are never forgotten. Love, Your Daughter, the blonde hair, blue eyed girl you always wanted but never had the opportunity to meet. See you on the other side!

We ask Thy blessings and eternal rest to all our brothers and sisters
Who have sacrificed their very lives in the performance of

Strength to bear the anguish of their loss. Remove all

forever. This we beg, Thy name forever and ever,
