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

Today is your 83rd anniversary of your death. You are not forgotten grandpa. Grandma told me good things about you, only wish I had met you. You have a wonderful great-grandson, Dustin, who knows all about you. I'm glad you are being honored with this memorial page. I'm very proud of you. Rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the eighty-first 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

How proud you must be that your grandson followed your footsteps and continued your legacy of protecting and serving.

Rest In Peace

This fallen brother's grandson is my Corporal, a towering impressive man wearing Corporal stripes. No doubt you are proud of your heritage, following in your steps. Rest in peace

You are gone but not forgotten... I look at your picture everyday on our frig and thank god every night my husband, your grandson, David also, comes home to his family. When we married he was a K-9 officer, never did I dream he would follow in your footsteps and become a motorcycle police officer too. I remember being very hesitate the first time I got on the back of his motorcycle but I knew I would be safe behind him, as I am today.

How very proud you must be of him today. He has become a remarkable man, a wonderful Daddy, a terrific husband and even more importantly a man in blue. He too is just as proud of you. Knowing that you have FINALLY been added to this national memorial wall after all these years. You will now get the respect and recognition as you join the list of true heroes you are so deserving of.

I know we will never meet in this lifetime but I wanted to thank you not only for your service in law enforcement but for given me the two best gifts ever, your grandson to love and Sarah and Zachary's O'pa.

May you rest in peace,
Ann Naar

Although many years have passed, the memories of you live on. Your grandson, a Dewey Beach (DE) Police Department Motor Officer is seeing to that. With his help and guidance, and that of the Town Historian for the Town of Oyster Bay and the PIO Office for the Nassau County Police Department, we are taking steps to see that you are properly honored on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. It is our hope and belief that you will finally be recognized for the sacrifice you have made in the service to your community. Rest peacefully and know that you have not been forgoten.

I saw the Heavens open up.
The Earth shook with Fear.
For Evil, knew of God's Army.
They were Heroes, Men on Steel Horses.
