Reflections for Patrolman Anthony William Balga

My dad's only brother and younger sibling died one week after my 2nd birthday. My only memory of him is in his uniform at his parents apartment. The police told my dad he was in a pursuit.

RIP Uncle Tony. You passed away five months before I was born, but I always think of you as I was named for you. Love, Dan

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

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 55th 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
