Reflections for Patrolman Dennis Shea

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

Patrolman Shea,
On today, the 109th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 107th anniversary year 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 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.

Patrolman Shea, today marks the 104th anniversary of your untimely death. It seems that whenever a tragic event happens, especially in New York City, the Police Department loses someone. That's because you're always there where you are needed. That's why you are known as New York's Finest.

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

Dear Patrolman Shea,

I've learned from your memorial that we have another brave officer to stand guard at heaven's gate. We wish you godspeed son, and our thoughts are with all who were affected by this tragic accident. You stood a line, protecting those who could not protect themselves and those who turned to you for protection. May God hold you in his arms. Please pray for us from above. We look forward to meeting you someday. We love you.
