Rest in Peace Deputy Sherri K. Jones. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the citizens of Bowie County Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue and gnaw at the rotting flesh of the scum bag that murdered you. May he never know peace. May the flames of hell forever scorch his worthless carcass!!
