The Franzek family would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to the Groton police dispatcher, Groton Police, EMTs in both Groton and Ayer and Nashoba Valley Medical Center personnel for the care and many kindnesses shown to us during the recent passing of my son, Kevin "Duke."

A special thank you to the correction officers' honor guard, friends and neighbors who are always there for us at these difficult times.
