Grandfather ( Nono),
My mother Gloria, your loving daughter, misses you each and every day. I only wish I could have met you. I state at your photograph, the one of you in your uniform and my heart swells with pride and weeps in sorrow. Until the day we meet..... I will continue to stare.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 63rd 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.

Time never diminishes respect. You will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace

Chief, today is the 61st anniversary of your murder. You might have noticed that things in the Grand and Glorious Commonwealth that you served have not changed much. On last Christmas Eve an Officer of the Woburn Police Dept. was murdered by a dirt bag who was serving THREE LIFE SENTENCES yet for reasons known only to the God and Parole Board, he was given Parole. Makes one sick. Well, no doubt Officer Maguire already filled you in, so I won't bore you anymore with this disgusting story.

May you continue to Rest in Peace, Chief, and God Bless.

Chief Mantoni, today marks the 56th anniversary of your murder. Thirty five years for murdering two people is a true injustice and typical of Massachusetts. Your dedication and heroism have not been forgotten and the people of Mendon owe you a great deal of thanks as to all of us who reside here in the Commonwealth.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

It is a horrible tragedy when an officer is killed in the line of duty. What seems to be even worse is that the scum bag that killed you is now free. 35 years was not enough time in prison.

35 years in prison does not seem right for your murder and of the murder of a bystander. The lord will make things right in the end. Rest in peace Chief Mantoni.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. It is deeply appreciated.
