Rest in Peace Deputy Sheriff Shirley Meclellan White. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw on the soul of your murderer. May his screams of anguish rise up from the grave as he is consumed in the lake of fire.
