Your heroism and service is honored today, the one 80th 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.

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