C/O Billy Moore and Warden Wallace Pack, Rest in Peace. Thank You both for your Service and Sacrifice. Your jobs are under appreciated.

I Pray for Peace for your Families, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursue and gnaw at the flesh of your murderer! I Pray that his pain and suffering be 100 fold. May his tree of life be forever smitten!
