I was blessed today 12-04-2019 by meeting Officer Franks Mother in the May Memorial Library in Burlington N.C. She was bringing in several of her son's favorite books to donate to the Library. She offered me to take as many as I wanted. She shared the tragedy that took her son's life. It touched me and I thanked her for her son's service and asked God to bless her. I took three of the books and I consider them special in that Officer Franks held them and enjoyed reading them. Rest in Peace Officer Franks.
