Hello, I’m speaking on the behalf of the family that took a tragic lost. A king, a great father, a great uncle and brother  Frederick Alexander Marble. First off, we are so grateful for the special forces, officers on foot and off foot. We all had very lack of confidence at first not knowing how they will catch this evil man that had took someone that belong to the Lord. But they were able to catch James Farris. They have gave my family relief. Now, the hardest part we will do. Placing him in a casket and give him his peace that he deserves. And I can not Thank the Officers enough, for not let up in the darkest coldest times.  #LONGLIVELILFRED
