Edward Tornatore, my grandfather was Edward P. Lynch. Our grandfathers did die as heros. I am thankful for your grandfather's service and his ultimate sacrifice.

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.

Rest In Peace
