Rest in Peace Police Officer David Noel. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Houston, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell are gnawing on the scum responsible for your murder. May their screams of anguish rise up from the lake of fire to warn other evil doers of their impending fate.
