Rest in Peace Deputy John R. Cramer. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of El Paso County, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw at the bones of your murderer. May the flames of hell forever scorch his bones.
