Grandpa,

I remember all the Saturday morning visits with Dad, Jeff and Teri, and when you took me to St. Rita’s for stitches in your patrol car when I cut my hand. They are treasured memories for me, you were a truly great man and I am thankful for the time we had together. I am proud of the Prince family name and the remarkable courage within you on that fateful Saturday morning so long ago.

Great Grandfather,

We are moving your daughter out of her house today, and we came across some articles from this tragic day. I really wish I could have gotten the opportunity to meet you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 50th 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.

Rest In Peace.

"Pop",
I didn't know you personally but my dad was on speaking terms with you as all 4 of his children attended Elida School. For some reason you have stayed in my mind these many years as has this senseless act. I know you were loved by most in the community as I remember the media coverage even though at the time I was only 8 years old.
God bless you Sir...
With fond memories.
