Uncle Sammy, your life continues to inspire our family. One of my sons, Samuel Matthew, is named for you . It touches me dearly to see you have not been forgotten by others. Your pictures are amongst our family in our living room and in our hearts. Your tragic death nearly destroyed your sister Rose and your parents, it scarred two generations. You had been the hope and dream of your family.

Your grand nephews walk in footsteps,Noah, Sammy,Andy Scott and Joe. They all admire your sacrifice and respect you had for your body. They each work out regularly, you would be proud.

With deep appreciation to all who stop to remember our uncle.

Love,

your niece Linda

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 59th 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 wanted to offer my sympathies over your senseless murder that took you from your family , community and colleagues. You were a true hero in your courage and bravery. My dad was one of NYPDs finest out of the 102 precinct for almost 40 years. Rest in peace officer Katz and OLav Hashalom.

Officer Katz:

You were born the same year as my father and died two years before I was born. Would that your children could have had a father who lived a full life as mine was able. I am sure you lived the time G-d gave you fully.

Your heroism and sacrifice truly exemplify the tradition of the Shomer, the watchman and protector of the community. I would hope the NYPD branch of the Shomrim Society has memorialized you well. May your memory be forever a blessing.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

Patrolman Katz, you are remembered on this date of your death. You will always be remembered.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” I hope the perpetrator has been sentenced to the most severe penalty. 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. AC
