The fate of that creature which murdered you is not listed here, to commit murder over one lousy penny, even if a penny was worth more in 1953, is disgusting. We can only hope this creature faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless you, Brother and may you eternally Rest in Peace.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 60th anniversary year 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

Dear Mr Mumby. My name is Gerald W. Hill. This name will mean nothing to you. This was the name given to me from the people who adopted me from the orphanage in Fargo N.D. My father murderd you. My name is Gerald W Crane. I have no memories of this but my entire life has been haunted by feelings..almost ghost like. I have never been a happy person, and now I know why. I apologize to you sir for what my father did. He not only killed and destroyed you but also every living individual who loved and held you dear. He also destroyd the lives of his family. The actions of one man, has been the cause of so much. In the name of Edward E. Crane I ask youre forgivness of my father.
