Your assailant may have escaped earthly justice but he surely gave a higher authority and justice at a later time in a different place. Thank you for your service and please know that no passage of time will ever erase your sacrifice. Rest in peace always.

Chief Brennan, you are remembered and honored on this the 100th anniversary of your death. A quote seems appropriate: "We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm."--George Orwell

We are in the debt of men like Chief Edward Brennan

I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. 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

I was just researching my Grandfather and found that he had received the honor of having the Safety Building named after him. I wish I had been informed, as I and my family would have certainly attended. We did get the chance to attend the dedication ceremony for the monument and will always hold those memories dear. My father John and Aunt Rose were 3 and 5 respective when their father was shot in the line of duty. I wish I had met him and I know Margaret, his wife, Rose, his daughter, John, his son, Norine, his daughter in-law, and Noreen, his granddaughter are all together now. God Bless and Keep You all.

Great Uncle Ed,
I never knew you personally, but heard of you so much growing up that I feel I do. You were my Grandmother's beloved baby brother. The loss she felt lasted her life until her death in 1974 at 91.Your favorite nephew was my father who was named after you, and who passed away in 1984 at 73.I know you are all together along with your other sisters children Joe,Vera, Mary, Marguerite, Johnny,and Vince, and are still often thought of by her surviving daughters Catherine and Florence as well as all their descendants. I was so pleased recently to discover that the new Town Hall being built in Wyoming will be named in your honor.
Love always, your great niece

A sad tragedy that your life was taken, as big a tragedy that your murderer got away with it. Two wrongs did not make a right.

On this 91st anniversary of your murder, I pray you are resting peacefully. You've earned that rest.

God Bless.
