I don't get to Clayton much these days, not since I moved. I see the memorial at Bojangles and my heart aches. It aches because she lost her life a couple weeks after finding my infant son who had been kidnapped. Thank you heavenly father for people like her. She assured me that everything was going to be alright and it was. My son is now 15 and a wonderful person. (He does not know about this).

She was born to make a different in people's lives. Thank you Clayton PD.
