    Benji and Family,

    Speaking on behalf of the Franks family we are deeply sorry for your loss. I never knew Jessica but I do know the heart of a nurse is a very special one, as I’m married to a nurse now myself. Nurses in my opinion are gods Angels sent from Heaven – may you and your family find peace and that you know she is in a better place.

    Be Well Brother – William and Rachel Franks
