Michael Caron came to Stoughton Police headquarters with his family for the presentation on Tuesday.

"It is hard to put on a brave face when meeting a family who has gone through so much," police posted on Facebook. "However, Michael just wouldn't allow us to feel sad for long. His energy lit a fire in our community room and his smile warmed our hearts on this cold day."
