Even though you made your brave sacrifice many years before I was born I honor and respect your service to everyone protected by you and you will never be forgotten in spirit or heart as a hero.

Patrolman Holmes,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New York City. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

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

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th 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 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

I said a little prayer today for Patrolman Holmes and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.

In the whisper of the wind,
I felt God embrace me.
As the voice of a loved one,
I heard God speak to me
Looking in a mirror
I saw God smile at me.
One moment and I knew
That God and I were one.

God bless you and those who love and care about you.

--------The final goodbye----------
It's been a while since you've been gone,
Guess I always hoped, deep inside,
that the facts weren’t true and someone lied, and instead of goodbye,
I would be saying hello to you.

Now my life carries on without you,
though I can't say that is so,
because each and every day
you fill my thoughts and dreams
and most things I do lately,
involve you it seems,
So how can it be that this is goodbye?
There are so many things we have to share,

So many plans to be made,
I turn to call you, I want to know you are home, but you're not there, you've already gone.
I’m not ready to say goodbye.

Some say that it's time to move on,
I know they are not wrong.
I move on, but I take you along.
I'm not ready yet,
to say goodbye.

It's been so hard to say goodbye,
and every time I try, I cry.
I just cant bring myself to believe,
that this is the final goodbye.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” It is an honor to be the first to leave a reflection in your memory. May the memory of your service, heroism and sacrifice remain forever. RIP brother. AC
