Rest In Peace Deputy Lewis Markham Huffman. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the citizens of Harrison County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-workers. I also pray that the scum that murdered you relive the moment that they were lynched for eternity. May the coals of hell forever be heaped upon their heads.
