Reflections for Night Policeman Herman H. Kirby

Not sure why your killer only got 10 years for this horrible crime. I don't really want to think about that. I'd rather think about what a good man you were. And how brave you were. Thank you sir. Rest in peace.

Rest in peace always and know that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 77th 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 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.

Officer Kirby,
It has taken over 70 years, but you are finally being honored. I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of McMinnville. But what gets me is how your murderer was only sentenced to 10 years in prison.

No fallen heroe should be without a reflection.

Over 70 years it took to be permanently honoured for your sacrifice to your community.

Rest in peace brother.

Your glory shall not be blotted out.
