Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th 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.

Ptl. Edwin Churchill was my grandfather's cousin. His widow, Florence Churchill was a champion for Police and Fire dept line of duty widows. Her courage and determination resulted in many of the benfits afforded to the families of these heroes. May they rest in peace.

I am Edwin Churchill's great nephew and former NYPD member. Ptl. Churchill's widow, the late Florence Churchill, was a champion for the widows of fallen policemen and Firemen of NYC. At the time of Churchill's death, widow's received almost nothing for losing their loved ones in the line of duty.
Much of the compensation received by line of duty widows today is the result of Mrs. Churchill's tireless efforts. The politicians of yesterday (much like today) cared nothing for the families of these brave public servants. May she rest in peace.
