It was so nice to read all the reflections to my father.It seems like it was just yesterday.My brother was 5years old,I was 10 years,my Dad just turned 40 & mother just turned 35. Mother & Dads birthday was on the same day. It was Thanksgiving , the man had been hunting & drinking all day ,he was fighting with his wife about Christmas presents she got away from him & called the Police. When they arrived at the house,my Dad stepped up on the porch,the man stuck his shoot gun out the door & shot my Dad in the right side of his head. The other officer with my Dad shot the man that killed my dad. It will be 63 years this coming Thanksgiving. Back in 1953 it was a very rare thing to kill a Policeman.People just don't have respect for other people like they use to . They kill Policeman everyday. God bless all Policeman,Thank God we have so many men & woman to do the job. Next time you see a Policeman Or Policewoman shake their hand & tell them Thank You. Linda Berryman Brock

Ptlm. Berryman,
I was born the day you were killed and I am sure the person who murdered you paid the price upon his death. It is my prayer that you have been able to rest in peace. Thank you for watching out for those of us who became officers after your passing including my father (1957 to 1980), my son (2005-still serving) and myself (1972 to 2009). Thank you for your service.

Officer Berryman,

I know that you are not forgotten by the members of the Kokomo Police Dept. Officers observe your memorial everyday as we enter the halls of the Police Department. I played baseball against your twin grandsons who are respectable men within the community. I am proud to display the colors of the blue and grey and I thank you for watching over the Officers of the Kokomo Police.

Patrolman George Albert Berryman. I just want to say thank you for everything you did for the City Of Kokomo. I also want to tell you that your children and grandchildren turned out to be real good people. Your son was my senior art teacher. Even though I made him mad all the time due to my unwillingness to complete certain art projects, he taught me a lot about art and about being a good person. Your two twin grandsons were very close friends of mine. Though we have drifted apart over the years I have no doubt you would be proud. In closing you deserved the award that took way to long to receive. Now that you have been gone I can see you have been protecting all the officers of Howard County and Kokomo. No other officer has lost his life since your tragic day. My dad who is still in law enforcement in Kokomo talks about your situation from time to time. So you might be gone but you are not forgotten.
