Thank you Officer Jared Francom for your service to your community. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends. I can relate because almost a year ago (Jan. 20, 2011) my second cousin, a police officer in Miami, Florida, was shot and killed in the line of duty. Healing will take time, but be assured that Jared's service is appreciated and his ultimate sacrifice will be remembered by many.
