Reflections for Patrolman William J. Greller

Grandpa,
I’ll never forget the story’s Grandma told me. I’m sure you know her and I were close. I do everything in my power to honor your life. Thank you for protecting the citizens of Cleveland.

What I think about today is how I never got to meet you. What I think about is the memory of you that will never be forgotten.

Today-tomorrow-next week. Your memory with me will never be forgotten. I am instilling thanking a Police Officer in my own sons brain.

That being said you will never be forgotten by me or anyone else in our family. RIP 1210! WE LOVE YOU!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 48th 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.

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


Rest In Peace

9-ll used to have a different meaning for me. Now it is the date that your beautiful wife, Lenny, joined you in Heaven. It's a comfort knowing that you are both together now, after all these years.

Though Lenny is gone, her laughter, smile and stories live on in your four wonderful boys and their families. Look down on them, guide them and let them know you are both wathing out for them always.

You are both gone now, but you will never be forgotten.

THANK YOU FOR PROTECTING THE CITIZENS OF CLEVELAND AND GIVING YOUR LIFE FOR THEM. FORTY-TWO YEARS HAVE GONE BY, BUT I AM SURE YOU ARE AWARE THAT YOUR VERY SPECIAL WIFE HAS RAISED 4 WONDERFUL BOYS THAT I KNOW YOU ARE VERY PROUD OF. I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD YOUR OLDEST SON AS BEST MAN IN MY WEDDING, AND I IN HIS, AND TO FEEL AS CLOSE AS I DO TO THE MARVELOUS FAMILY YOU WERE FORCED TO LEAVE BEHIND.
