Rest in Peace Special Deputy Sheriff C. Arthur Lyman. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Hennipen County, MN..

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and the men and women of the Hennipen County Sheriff's Department. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue the scum that murdered you.
