Officer Donahue,
Sir, even though it's been 113 years since your End of Watch you are still honored and rememembered. It took another 4 months but your murderer got the justice that he deserved.

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.
God Bless

113 years ago today you were murdered. Justice found your killer, but regardless, you were still gone. I have no doubts you stood by your family, and maybe still do regardless of the years that have passed.

Your Police Department is facing a rough time right now (not that it never did) and it's those like yourself that did the job, fought the good fight and stood the watch in years gone by that have to inspire those who are out there today facing disgusting accusations and threats. You have to be their inspiration. You and those like you who laid down their lives in the service of others, have to be with your descendants in that thin blue line and let them know that, no matter what, they are the Guardians, NOT the 'occupying force'.

God Bless you for your service. May you Eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the 107th 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 103 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
