Officer Kelley, 11 years ago today you and your partners where horrifically ambushed and murdered while trying to protect a mother from her son. Your killer will never be able to hurt anybody else again He deserved the death penalty which he got in 2011 . God Bless you and thank you for your service to your country and to the people of Pittsburgh. Rest easy

Hey Eric: The city held a wonderful service in your honor. Your family was there. I stopped by in the afternoon. You are missed. I will never forget that day and being there. I can't believe it is 10 years already. I am sure you're with GOD and may GOD be with your family.

Officer Kelly,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC. You were off-duty yet you responded-thats says everything about the kind of man and police officer you are. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I remember the day you said your joining the force, and I was happy for you be joining us. We had good laughs together, played ball together, and worked together. It was good to have that personal relationship with someone on this job. However that day 4-4-09 will always remain on the coldest days of my life. I lost three co-workers that day and one really good friend. Rest easy my brother rest easy......

You would probably still be alive if you went home after your shift. Instead you selflessly, honorably and bravely made the decision to assist your brothers. You are the very definition of what it means to be a police officer

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third 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.

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. I hold your family in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace

Officer Kelly,

Guys like you are why I became a police officer. Your actions that day make me proud to go to work each day. I can’t imagine the pain that is felt by the families of your fallen brothers who died that day, but I am positive that your selfless actions that day brings comfort to them; no matter what, they know that you ran directly into the mouth of Hell itself to protect their loved ones from a madman.

May God bless your family.

Rest easy Brother.
