Rest in Peace Sheriff Ray Ralph Burton. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting Armstrong County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family and ancestors. I also Pray that while your murderers may have escaped justice on this earth that their carcass' are now being consumed by the hounds of hell. May their screams of pain and agony as they burn in the lake of fire echo around their earthly grave!
