Rest In Peace, Brother. May God forgive your sins and allow you into eternal paradise. Will keep you and your family in prayer. No more pain in this world and pure bliss in the next. You gave the ultimate sacrifice and may the powers at be recognize the dangers of working in a prison without proper funding and shadow staff. This should have never happened.
