Reflections for Police Officer Jack Woomer

I remember you as a happy hardworking uncle. Your duty and honor and dedication were something I respected. Your death left a void in my life and the lives of everyone related to you. You were someone my mother, your sister, relied on.
I will always honor your memory (I was 8 when your watch ended). Thank you!

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. 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 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

I just returned from Newark last Sunday. I stayed there while commuting into New York while attending the 100th Anniversary Memorial for the 146 victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire on March 25, 1911. My grandmother was a survivor. A similar fire occurred months earlier in Newark but no one paid attention.

Newark is a very different city then when you policed it. Every morning I saw the local beat cops taking a break in the lobby of my hotel. Every day I met officers from your department, NYPD and FDNY. I was not even 2 when your life was taken. Your family holds you close still in their hearts. A city owes you a debt that can never be repaid. May your memory be a blessing.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” It is an honor to be the first to leave a reflection in your memory. May the memory of your service, heroism and sacrifice remain forever. AC
