Your heroism and service is honored today, the 61rst 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 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 McHale,
Sir, on today the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citzens of Minneapolis. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. It angers me that your murderer didn't face justice.
