Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family, friends and all the members of the Richmond County Sheriff's Department. We were made safer by his service and we all suffer their tragic loss. The family of Deputy Burton deserves our appreciation and gratitude for their sacrifice. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Deputy Burton is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Merry Christmas

December 24, 2004

I stop by this website daily to pray for all of you who have given your lives so that your fellow man might live without fear.

We know that live is eternal and we must look beyond. My mother, who is in heaven with you now, gave the following verse to me.

"See the blossom on the bare branch;
See the harvest in the tiny seed;
See the wholeness in the illness;
See God's Order in the confusion;
See Life in the midst of death;
See the substance of things unseen."

Rest in peace, dear one. We love you.
Pray for us as we pray for you daily.

I'm sorry about the loss of your father, husband,& grandfather. Times are hard, and the haven't become easier, as I am a suvivor and a mother as well. I have a 7yr old daughter that lost her father David Land on 03-26-03 at 4pm. I haven't stopped by these pages in a long time, it has been hard for me to read them, i feel like I'm reading another page i know so well.. Our own Fallen officer. My prayers go to your family even though we do not know one another. but it seems we are all tied by tragedy... Im so very sorry..
