to my great uncle - your sisters honored you by naming their sons after you & remembering how you disliked the fact that your first name was spelled with a "W" making it more difficult to sign your name. Laurence Ward Lucey was born 2 months after you died, Laurence John Long a year later. Each nephew has a son name Laurence.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 78th 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.

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Ward and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

Officer Ward...although your family may not even know of the existence of the ODMP site...since it is only a little more than a decade old...I still offer my condolences to them for your loss.

As a fellow New Yorker, who also lost a brother in the line of duty, I know the grief and heartache created by tragic circumstances and how that impacts the family forever.

My prayer for you is...May God's perpetual light shine upon the soul of Patrolamn Lawrence A. Ward, and may you rest in His eternal peace for having made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting and serving your community.

God bless you and your family.

You are not forgotten...
