Officer Eddleman,
On today, the 120th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Vandalia.

The animal did a mere 10 years in prison. Disgraceful. His name is meaningless, however yours lives on and is honored here, which is right and proper.

God Bless you, Brother and may your continued rest be ever peaceful.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 119th 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.
