I just walked the 5k Memorial Run 2015 in NYC in your honor. I did not know you (of course) but it was my honor to wear your name on the bib. May you forever rest in peace and know that all those who served our great city are not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and fifty-second 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 said a little prayer today for Patrolman Hardenbrook and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

Patrolman Hardenbrook, today marks the 151st anniversary of your brutal murder. Though the job has changed considerably since you walked the streets of New York, the dangers remain essentially unchanged. You were one of the forerunners of today’s law enforcement. As a pioneer as well as a martyr, you are a hero. You have not been forgotten.

What happened to the two who murdered you, we may never know, but I’m sure they faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Not many actions define the word "Hero" like yours does. You will always be rememebred for your sacrifice regardless of how many years pass. Rest in peace sir.
