Rest in Peace Deputy Sheriff Isaac Ward. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Jack County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and the men and women of the Jack County Sheriff's Department. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue the scum that murdered you. May he know no peace in the after life. May his grave be infested with thorns and weeds. May he burn forever in the lake of fire!
