Reflections for Patrolman Edward T. Byrns

Terrible tragedy Patrolman Byrns. A widower who served New York and left children behind. You are to be paid homage and humbly saluted for bravery. My dad served for almost forty years with the102nd precinct. His years of protecting were from 1928 until 1966.

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

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th anniversary 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Patrolman Byrns,
On today, the 82nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you to you and your partner 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.
