John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

This will be the fourth Yankees Opening Day since you left us Donnie. You were a great cop and a great friend and are truly missed. I posted the following on Facebook on April 6, 2015 and it's still true today. I will be wearing that jersey and jacket today as the Yankees take on the Rays. Love you my brother. Until we meet again....

---------------------------------------------------------------

Going to the Yankees Home Opener today against the Blue Jays with Phil Rosenberg, and in doing so we will honor the memory of Don O'Leary, who passed away a little over a year ago after a long battle with cancer that was a result of his work down at ground zero after the 9/11 terror attacks. I have a lot of fond memories of Donnie, including many Yankee Home Openers. The Replacement Player delayed Home Opener of 1995, where there was a post game "mini riot" in the parking field next to the old stadium; the Home Opener of 1996, where it snowed and The Boss, George Steinbrenner, allowed all ticket holders to go to another game, and we ended up going to Dwight "Doc" Gooden's no hitter. The Home Opener of 1998, where both teams combined for 30 runs. The Home Opener of 1999 where it rained the whole game and they called it in the bottom of the 7th. The Home Opener of 2002, where Andy Pettitte got his 1,000 K. I attended so many great games with Donnie. This year , thanks to Donnie's wife Maria, I will have the honor of wearing Don's favorite Bernie Williams jersey and Yankees Jacket to the game. Donnie will be with us in spirit and we will raise a cup in his honor. Here's to a good game and a Yankee victory.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second 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. Our 9/11 heroes will never be forgotten.

Rest In Peace
