My thoughts and Prayers for Officer Burroughs family. I just learned of his passing. Officer Burroughs served as an off duty police officer for the Red Roof Inns for many years. He was a very kind and caring officer. I know he is at peace and no more pain or suffering. May God comfort you and keep you during this difficult time. God Bless.

I worked with Dewayne in Durham at a time in our lives when we thought we were invincible. We all end up bearing the weight of something in our lives. I was honored to have worked by his side during those years.

Diane and Cliff, it is not supposed to go this way, but no one knows the hour that we will go to meet our Savior. I only remember Dewayne as a boy and after he grew up we sort of lose track of those who live almost next door to us. I always knew he was a very smart person. I am just sorry his life was cut short. I know you will miss him and I cannot imagine how you must feel. I know there are many good memories about Dewayne that will bring laughter and tears. I am praying God will give you peace and keep both of you well. God Bless You.
