Your heroism and service is honored today, the 74th 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

If there were ever a thankless unpopular job, it would be as an Investigator with the IRS. I’m sure it’s not an easy job, probably not a fun job, not even back in 1938, but it’s still a job that has to be done and Special Agent Berry, you did it.

On this 71st anniversary of your murder, I wish to thank you for your efforts. The country can’t run without money in its treasury and you helped to make sure it got there by legal means.

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