Constable Stone, you stood firm against a family of filth. You are honored here for that stand you took and the valiant attempt to enforce the law. They are in Hell where they belong, you are in Heaven, where YOU belong and your descendants can look at their ancestor with pride.

God Bless you and may your eternal rest be ever Peaceful, Brother.
