To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 81rst 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

Patrolman Kennedy,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Nassau County. It took another 2 years, but one of your murderers finally got the justice that he deserved.
