Police officers accompany daughter of fallen officer to father-daughter dance

Fallen Policeman's Daughter Escorted to Dance by Fellow Officers

In July 2011 in Memphis, Tennessee, officer Tim Warren was shot and killed while assisting with a domestic situation. When Warren's daughter Jewel, who was 4 years old when Warren was killed, received an invitation to attend her school's father-daughter dance, she was very sad that she wouldn't be able to bring her dad to the dance.

Jewel's mother reached out to Taylor Amen, the wife of an MPD officer, as well as Donna Kirk, the widow of a Memphis firefighter for help with the situation. The women arranged for several officers to willingly escort Warren's daughter to the dance.

Before the dance Jewel was treated to a trip to the salon. When the officers picked her up in a classic 1972 Cutlass Supreme, they each presented her with a long stem rose. Officer Amen said:

"We know we cannot replace Tim, but we can be there for his family when we are needed. It was truly a honor."

Holliday Flowers and Lynn Doyle Flowers donated boutonnieres for the officers that they sported on their uniforms. The kind Flowers also donated a corsage for Jewel and the long stem roses. Amanda Swain, a local photographer, also donated her time by taking photos of the event. Officer Pfeil said:

"It was an honor to be able to attend this event and to help keep Tim's memory alive."

Aww! These officers have won the hearts of thousands all over the Internet. We hope Jewel felt like an absolute princess at the dance.
