Reflections for Trooper Martin J. Kerins

Uncle Marty, You were never forgotten by my dad, your brother Charles or Charlie as most folks called him. He spoke of you often and never got over your loss. Now he is with you and Grandma, Grandpa, Uncles Bobbie, Georgie, Howie and Aunt Helen, also your brothers and sisters that died during the flu epidemic of 1918. My dad always taught us to respect the officers of the Law and I always have. I have also taught my children and grandchildren to be respectful as well. Thank you for your service and sacrifice and let the family know I will be glad to see them when I get to heaven although I am in no rush..... May you rest in God's eternal peace through Christ Jesus, Amen!

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 75th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to leave a tribute to you. 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.

Uncle Marty,

I never met you, and neither my dad. I’m your step-niece. I hear so many good things about you. I wish I would have met you. But I love you for all your love and care you had for others. My dad always talks in remembrance of you. Love you!

Grandad,

I never got to meet you, however, you have had such an impact on my life. Today I will photograph the Police Memorial Ceremony here in Albany. I know that you will be with me just the way you were with me when I crossed the finishing line of the NYC Marathon, that I ran in your memory.

Love your Grandson,

Marty Kerins Jr
