I am the daughter born on the day of his funeral. At 76 years of age, I still think of all the “ what if’s.”

Looking forward to meeting him someday.

Officer Lipinski,
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 Detroit. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

What a heartwarming surprise. Every so often I look up our hero and this is the first time I have found these reflections. Thank you Officer Zambito, Phyllis Loya and Pennsylvania State Trooper. I was three and a half when my dad was murdered. My sister Michele was born the morning of the funeral. He is still watching over us and we remember him every day. Two daughters, seven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren love their hero.

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 69th 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.

How very hard it must have been for your wife to say goodbye to you as she said her first hello to your daughter. Heartbreaking.

Mitchell was not only survived by his wife Veronica, but left a young daughter. On the day of his funeral, his second child, another daughter, was born. He was my Dad's brother.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” You will never be forgotten.
