Rest in Peace Special Officer Roy E. Burton. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting America's steel roadways.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Ancestors and those brave souls who have chosen to follow in your foot steps protecting the public. I also Pray that the thug who murdered you is rotting in hell.

Amen.
