Rest in Peace Constable Probert Peolia Story. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of The Great State of Texas and Morris County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the thug that caused your death meet with a dastardly fate. May the hounds of hell forever pursue their sorry souls. May the flames of hell totally consume their souls!

Amen.
