Officer Jennings would come in a flash to McCook hospital to assist myself and George Foster-Bey with unruly patients. He was always kind and cared more about others than himself. He was a good officer and was sorely missed by all at McCook.

I was young when Officer Jennings was killed. He was my father's friend and neighbor, growing up on Warren St. I heard a lot of funny stories of their childhood, especially about the Jennings mean dog!!

I was very young when Officer Jennings was killed. He and my father, Carl Stone, were childhood friends and neighbors on Warren St.
I've heard many stories of their lives, growing up. (The Jennings had a mean dog!!)

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.

It is amazing to see all the love that people have for my grandfather. All though I never got a chance to meet you in person, I am grateful for who you were.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. .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 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.

Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found a peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you all the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored so much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
for God wanted me now, He set me free.

Semper Fidelis....(Always Faithful)
