Warden Tenney, thank you for all your efforts to keep criminals away from society while they serve their sentences. I know it's a difficult job and women and men like you are heroes for doing it.
How pathetic was this wretch in killing you over a lack of sufficient meat? I mourn your passing, even after all these years.
God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 153rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace.

Warden Tenney,
On today, the 151st anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. And to your family, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

Rest assured fallen brother, your sacrifice has not been made in vain. The calling to public service is a personal one, the dedication to the safety of others is now, and always has been, a noble one.
Your sacrifice exemplifies this very fact.

My brothers Daniel J. Tenney(S.B.C.C./N.C.C.I), Kirk A. Tenney(N.C.C.I.)and I carry on your legacy, your sons have sons, as brave as were their fathers...
