To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 67th 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.

Detective Friedman died 15 years before I was born. I married my wife JoAnn on June 25, 1995 which is the 50th anniversary of Detective Friedman's untimely death. I feel proud to share the same name as Friedman and to have served as a Police Officer for the NYC Health & Hospitals Corporation at Kings County Hospital. My brother Morris may you rest in peace and I will continue to serve with pride in law enforcement and be proud that both of our names is Friedman.

To The Family of Detective Friedman:
I wanted to offer my sympathies even though your were taken senselessly from your family and colleagues many decades ago. My dad was one of NYC police departments finest for almost forty years and too belonged to Shomrim of Florida. You were a hero in every sense of the word and should never be forgotten. I attended Hebrew Theological College over thirty years ago. Rest in peace Det. Friedman.

It is nice to see that Morris has a place so that people can remember. My mom told me about him and I once saw a picture of the wall with his badge on it. Once I started in our families history, I could no longer find that website. Thank you for posting this.

I am proud to share the same last name of Detective Morris Friedman. Det. Friedman stood tall and proud as a police officer. Morris Friedman is my inspiration to carry on in the law enforcement field and to honor the name Friedman in law enforcement. May he rest in peace my Shmorim brother.
