Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 80th 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

Patrolman Burke,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City. It took another two years, but your murderer finally got the justice that he deserved.

+As a promise to your NYCPD Sergeant son, Kieran, I had often looked after your photo proudly displayed with the other officer heros of the 32 Precinct, when I served there. You will not be forgotten.
