Sir Thank You for your contribution to the people of your city (railroad). I didn't know Union Station Police Officers were a thing! That's incredible, I looked it up on the internet and nothing comes up. You are special sir, not only for protecting lives like all law enforcement but also because of your heroism AND story. Rest In Peace on your death anniversary. Today and everyday you are not forgotten, as you are a patriotic hero to your community and others. Thank you sir.

I would like to thank Senior Special Agent Sherwood for his kind words. My mother was a direct descendant Widdowfield and we are so proud of Robert and his service to America.We hope to visit The Memorial in Washington this year. I am now 80 and cannot leave it any longer.
We visited his grave and Vince's some time back from North Yorkshire in the U K and would like to see the monument
Sincerely George and Sandra Jones.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 135th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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 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.
