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

Officer Elmer Noon was my great uncle and his nephew, Officer John Ryan was my uncle. I was a third generation law enforcement officer in our family, with the Maryland State Police..During my 26 years of service I had many cases with the detectives in the City Police Headquarters. I would always stop at the Memorial in the lobby honoring the fallen officers and think of “Aunt Buff “and cousin Ann , when I saw Elmer Noon’s name on the memorial. Oh what great memories of the holiday meals Aunt Buff would make for our family.
Thank You for your service Sir!

This is to Ann Power. Your Dad was my Dad’s uncle. My Dad’s name was Walter Michael Dunne. His grandfather was Michael Noon from South Baltimore. I remember my Dad telling the story of Elmer Noon and what happened to him.. Your Dad was never forgotten and lives on in the stories of my family. You would be surprised on how many relatives you have still living in Baltimore.

I have been thinking about our family quite a bit lately. My generation of cousins, which was a huge one, is rapidly shrinking. I miss them all. Merry Christmas Pop.

The years go so fast. Here it is, another Christmas and another year approaching. It's the time of year that we think a good deal of those no longer with us. I miss my parents, and my aunts and uncles, and the cousins and friends who are gone. I look back and remember good times and fun in years past. But that is the nature of loss. We grieve, we remember, and finally, we remember with joy and smiles. I wish that kind of remembering for the families of those on this site that have died. Honor them by recalling the good times. I will think about my father and mother a good deal over the next couple of weeks and I will be a bit sad, but mostly I will smile and look back at good times filled with laughter and fun.

I lost my father on November 20, 1946. I was 4 years old and didn't comprehend what was happening. I grew up in a 1 parent family and truthfully, it seemed perfectly normal. My Mom was great and did her absolute best.
My father would have been a great Dad had he had the chance. I look at his picture and realize how young he was, much younger than I am now. Sometimes life just isn't fair; this site is filled with situations where life isn't fair.
Our loved ones are not forgotten but over the years the pain fades and we can enjoy our memories with smiles and joy. The real consolation is seeing how well families manage to cope and go on. Those we have lost can mostly be proud of those they left behind. Rest easy Pop, we did fine although we missed you every day.

This will be a sad holiday for many folks who have lost loved ones this year, especially for the parents of all those lovely children in Newtown, Connecticut, and for all the relatives of all the victims. There is such pressure to have fun and be happy at this time of year, but happiness for these folks is impossible. The parents of the lost children have Christmas presents ready for children who will never get to open them and many have other small children for whom they have to carry on. Pray for all those families and hug and appreciate your own family during this Christmas season.
My mom lost her husband right around Thanksgiving and had a 4 year old for whom Christmas was important. How she coped I will never know but I have thought about her this past week while watching the heartbreaking parade of funerals and tiny coffins.
I wore purple today to honor the memory of little Josephine Gay, the Maryland child who was one of the Newtown victims and who loved purple.
May God grant eventual consolation to all these families so that, on other Christmases, they may enjoy the wonderful memories of their lovely children with smiles.

Cherish your loved ones. Pretend every day they are with you may be the last day. Sometimes it is. I often wonder what it would have been like to have my father around while I was growing up. He left us 66 years ago on November 20. I still wonder. Cherish your loved ones.

Father's day was always an uncomfortable day growing up. I no longer had a father and most of the other kids did. So while everyone had cookouts and celebrated the day, I just tried to get through it. I didn't have too many memories of my father since I was only 4 when he died. But now looking back I realize that I knew him in a way. I grew up hearing stories about him from my Mom and other family members and while these were not memories they helped create a picture that I still cherish. Sunday I will be grateful for the few years I did have with my father and for all the wonderful tales about him I heard from family and friends. I do know my father thanks to them and it seems he was a really great guy, outgoing with a great sense of humor and a real love for his home and family. Happy Father's Day.

I baked my mom's famous pumpkin pie this morning. It was always a favorite of my friends. As soon as the spicy scent is released I think of many Christmases at home. The memories are happy but at the same time, I can't help but think about November 1946 when, just before Thanksgiving, my mom lost her partner and I lost my dad. I don't know how she coped with the holidays that year but somehow she did. She had a 4 year old and I'm sure was faced with putting gifts under the tree that were purchased by her recently deceased husband. I don't remember that Christmas but I know she did the best she could under the circumstances. My father was always missed in our lives and always appreciated. my mom often told his favorite jokes or little stories about him. I hope they enjoyed mom's pumpkin pie together many times. Tomorrow I will be thinking about the 2 of them.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 65th 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.

Death ends a life, not a relationship and this is truly reflected in the loving messages left by your daughter Ann. I pray for solace for al those wh called you beloved.

Rest In Peace

Another Christmas is just about here. I am so thankful for the wonderful childhood my mother and father gave me. So many children are neglected and abused and it is so wonderful to know that I was loved and wanted by both my parents. May God bless both of them and give them a special place in heaven this Christmas and every day.

Saturday marks another anniversary of your death. You have been missed all these years and loved all these years. I wish things could have been different and that I could have had you around growing up. Sometimes life isn't fair but we do the best we can. You are fondly remembered by all the family and especially by me.

Merry Christmas Pop, Yet another Christmas is here and I think of you and Mom and all the years growing up. They were good years, happy and safe yet sadly, you were missing. Stephen made a plaque on which he mounted the brass buttons of your uniform. I wish you could see it. He hung it, along with your nightstick, behind his bar. You would love it. Have a wonderful day.

I don't remember very much about our relationship but there are a few things I hold dear. I remember taking the street car (the seats squeaked) to see the relatives in south Baltimore and the bakery with the great sugar cookies on the way to Aunt Sis's house. I remember drinking a seven up in the pub and learning to drink out of a bottle. Boy, was Mom surprised. I remember visiting Aunt Sis at her job and spending time in Aunt Ag's house. I remember you loved beans and franks for dinner and shared with me. I wish we had had a lifetime together but that wasn't meant to be. I am grateful for the memories I can cherish and I think they mean more because they are so few. You loved being a father and I am sorry you didn't get more of a chance to be one. You would have been great.

by Judy Burnette many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name;
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.

What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child;
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.

What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you;
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.

Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in my seems
the sound has been erased.

Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don't fit.

Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
I'd tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.

Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.

Today, Jesus, as You are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.

Merry Christmas Pop, I don't know what else to say. I miss you, I love you, and I thank you for being a memorable father. You and Mom gave me a wonderful childhood, and though you weren't around very long you were very influential. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

Another Father's day is here and even though I didn't have you for very long I wouldn't trade you for the world. I wish we had had all those years but it was not my fault nor yours that we didn't. It doesn't seem fair that you didn't have much of an opportunity to be a father but you were a great father in the time you did have. Happy Father's Day Pop.
