Reflections for Officer Andrew J. Grimes

Andy Grimes was my great grandfather. We knew very little about him until about 7 years ago. Through research on the internet we have found out so much more about him. My grandfather talked very little about him as he was 13 when his father died. It has been a pleasure to find out more about him and I am so proud of his service to the Ft. Worth PD. And so on the 114th anniversary of his EOW, I honor him through this reflection!

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
God Bless

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 110th 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.

Officer Grimes,
On today, the 108th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Fort Worth. That your murderer was only sentenced to two years in jail is an insult to all Law Enforcement and is unbelievable.
