Officer Morrison, today marks the 100th anniversary of your passing due to your injuries. Here we see a cop asked to do something that, in reality was not police work, but, you did it to help a guy out. This happens often, people looking to the Police to do something that is not our job, but we're available and some folks seem to think can do everything.

You went above and beyond and tragically, you lost your life. Time has passed but your spirit lives on and no doubt you are very proud of your grandsons.

May your continued eternal rest remain peaceful, Brother and I know in my heart, God has blessed you.

Grandpa we never met because you were taken way to soon. I'm your grandaughter Joanne, your son Edward's baby daughter. Thank you for your dedicated years of service to the Yonkers, N.Y. police department. When you see my father Edward give him a hug. Rest in peace. Amen.

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

My dad was four years old when his father died in the line of duty. As a child I remember my dad having a police shield in his dresser draw. Little then did I know it was my grandfather's and that some day I would wear one just like him. I have been honored to follow in his footsteps along with my brothers Edward (his namesake) and Gary. We three are now retired sergeants from the Westchester County Police in NY. Thanks to the Yonkers Police Historical Society for bringing to light his line of duty death. I will always cherish his picture and biography and will pass his legacy on to my children and grand children.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. I am privileged to be the first to pay tribute to you. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 84th 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 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.
