I miss you and love you forever and always...... I even miss your beatings lol......

This year me and Grams hung out together and neither one of us mentioned the date because each thought the other forgot and didn't want to upset the other lol. Silly us we should have known your unforgetable...

I'm sad you had to leave us but thank you for leaving me GRANDMA.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the twenty-third 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.

Rest In Peace

Officer Venable,
On today, the 21st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I'm sorry to see that there are not more reflections in your honor but it is obvious that the ones that are here are those from friends who miss you greatly. I never knew you but I respect the job you did and the greatest sacrafice that you made. I hope your daughter grew up as well as could be with the physical absence of her father in her life. Thank you for your dedication and for serving.

~~~Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep~~~

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn’s rain
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds circled in flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
I am the flowers that bloom by day
I am the fragrance of new mown hay
I am each blade of grass that grows
I am the rush of melting snow

Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am no there, I did not die…..

Brother I remember us working in district 2 together and then we both went to plainclothes in Brooklyn. On that tragic night I remember that you were trying to get off so that we could party in Pennsylvania.

RIP my brother and know that you are not forgotten.

Remembering you on the anniversary of your death. May God comfort
all those who are still grieving your passing. Life is difficult at times
and the Lord Jesus wants to help carry our burdens. He gives us many
beautiful promises in His Word to help us through our valleys. I pray you
will feel His presence and know His peace. God bless!

Bobby... It's been over 15 years since that terrible night. I remember it as if it was yesterday. I miss your sense of humor and how you always were smiling. Even though we were in diferent units we somehow always seemed to end up at the same place. Euclid Ave is etched in my mind, because that is where I lost a friend. I still remember giving you my reciept for an approved day off (TP30) so you could write down the particulars of the arrest and I told you that if I got into trouble for taking the day off, I was going to come after you. Who knew you would be shot 20 minutes later for no other reason than that you were a police officer. RIP

PO Barry Kucher

Your memory will always be carried on with the dignity and respect for their is no greater love than to sacrifice one's life for your fellow brothers and sisters. The members of the NYC Transit Police Memorial Lodge #317 are proud and honored to call you one of our own.
