I was at Patrolman Flanagan's gravesite today. His widow, Grace, later married my grandfather. I was visiting my Grandfather's grave and saw that Officer Flanagan is in the same plot; he is buried in Calvary Cemetery, Woodside, NY, Sec. 31, Area 7, Graves 17-18.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 81rst 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.

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

Rest In Peace.
