After 22 years serving his community, Officer Charlie Kondek died on the line of duty after responding to a routine call in 2014. Two years later his daughter Aleena is getting ready to go the prom but no one is there to take her. But then something truly amazing happens that truly warmed my heart. Read the story below.
After Aleena Kondek’s dad died in 2014, she didn’t know who was going to take her to the prom, such an important night of her life.
But officers at the Tarpon Spring Police Department were there to step in.
They’d secretly organized with her mother and decided to wait for her where she was dropped off for her prom.
“It’s our responsibility and our honor to stand in for Charlie. Charlie would be here and he’s not able to be here. So we want to be here for Charlie and for Aleena,” said one of the officers.
And it doesn’t stop here – the officers never left Aleena’s side, standing closely with their fallen colleague’s family.
“They always say, ‘never forgotten,’ and I totally believe that. They’re always texting me, ‘how are you doing?’ and they step in with things that my dad did, and they’re amazing. I love each and every one of them,” Aleena said.
I was so touched with what these honourable men and women did to help out the family of a fallen officer. I’m so impressed and proud of them!
Watch the moving report below.
Please share to celebrate these officers’ beautiful act.
