Chief Deputy Burk,
On today, the 92nd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Talladega County.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 92nd 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.

Rest In Peace.
