BOONE COUNTY, Ind. — An Indiana boy who raised nearly $7,000 for the family of a fallen sheriff’s deputy visited his memorial Sunday.

Malachi Fronczak sold lemonade and hot cocoa on Friday and Saturday to help the family of deputy Jacob Pickett, who was laid to rest Friday.

A year ago, Fronczak opened his lemonade stand to help the family of Southport Lt. Aaron Allan, who was also killed in the line of duty.

On Sunday, 6-year-old Fronczak and his family traveled to Boone County to visit the memorial set up for the fallen deputy.

He signed a flag tribute for Pickett and also left behind a bottle of lemonade.

A photo posted on his Facebook page showed him saluting Pickett’s memorial.
