Edward F. Maher died after chasing down the brother of the man that murdered my grandfather, Alfred V. Klausman, on Tuesday, January 14, 1941. Thank you for your courage, Patrolman Maher.

Ed Maher was my father's brother. I was born in Sept of '41. It was just as though I had met him through my family's stories. My brother, and sisters remembered his funeral/burial in Newburg NY. His son Ed was a good cousin. His 3 aunts in Long Beach raised young Ed who went on to Holy Cross College and became a lawyer. The only mention of the loss of my Uncle was that my father witnessed their execution at Sing Sing. My husband, Capt, ,Bruce H. Bennett, Ret showed me My Uncles Memorial plaque at Hedquarters in NY.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the seventy- first 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. Like you, he was shot duirng a foot pursuit of two armed robbers.

Time never dimishes respect, not even 71 years.

Rest In Peace
