pray for Mary Ricard
The inmate attacked the two in the kitchen area of the medium-security prison while breakfast was being served. The inmate was able to inflict serious stab wounds on both sergeants before being subdued. Sergeant Ricard succumbed to her injuries while the other sergeant remains in critical condition.
Apparently Mary Ricard was at the corrections facility on her day off - the day she was killed.
Prison Officials describe her as a great person, who was dedicated to her job.
Mary is survived by many loving friends and relatives.
Pray for all who die in the line of duty.
Let us pray that Mary Ricard is in heaven. Let us pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
