Your heroism and service is honored today, the 82nd 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.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered. I am so glad tht your family has an opportunity to honor you every year in Buffalo.

Rest In Peace

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

Grandpa, although I never knew you, I feel like I always have. I have heard the many stories about you and your bravery that cold February winter day in 1930 that you were shot and died protecting others lives during a robbery. I have read the newspaper accounts and the magazine stories, and I can never begin to tell you how proud I am of you. My mom misses you so much Grandpa, and she always remembers you even though she wasn't but a little 2 year old baby the day you died. She knows you loved her so, and she too is so very proud of you and will tell anybody about your heroics on February 4, 1930.
Each year in May, my mom, my dad, my wife, myself, and my brother attend a memorial service in Buffalo, New York for Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty. It never fails to bring tears to my eyes every time when I hear those TAPS played at the conclusion of the service, and I pray to God that you can see us all there in your honor.
Grandpa, I just know that some day down the road, I will get to meet you. I know also that one day, you once again will be able to hold my mom, your little baby daughter, in your arms once more and tell her how much you've missed her and love her. I know that God will see to it that you will see your little girl again face to face. My mom lives for that day. And when it is time for God to call her home, it will be to a much better place, and I know that it will be the day that she finally meets her loving father. On that day Grandpa, I will cry so hard because I will know that she is in Heaven standing right next to you, and she will be so happy.
Thank You Patrolman Carl Wunderlich. I will never forget you, and I look forward to the day my mother proudly introduces me to my hero of a Grandfather. I love you!
May you live in Peace with God, and I'll see you down the road...
All My Love,
Your Grandson,
Rick Schenauer
