RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — Life can get lonely at times, especially during a pandemic.

Well, that was until a Randolph County Deputy stop by to save the day! Not only did the deputy help the boy make his first $5 purchase, but the flowers were going to be placed in good hands as the deputy said he planned to give them to his girlfriend. 

“Thank you to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and it’s good-hearted deputies. We appreciate you so much! God bless!" the boy's grandmother said in closing on the Facebook post which was posted by the Randolph County Sheriff's Office.
