Officer Rod Lee Bradway was killed on September 20, 2013. He went to rescue mother and child after responding to a domestic violence call when he was shot six times over there.
Sierra Bradway is the name of his daughter. Earlier this month, the teen got ready for her prom and went to cemetery in order to pay respect to her father’s grave. She just went to take some prom pictures having no idea what was waiting for her.
That was why it was so important for Sierra to honor her father and make him a part of her prom night. It would be just her, the photographer and her date, Brock Spayd.
However, Spayd’s mother heard about the plan and wanted to do something special for Sierra.
Fox News reported, “The plan was set in motion by Brock’s mother, a captain in the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, who learned of Sierra’s cemetery visit and called upon officers from the Indianapolis Police Department and other regional departments to help make the teen’s prom more special.”
The Indianapolis Police Department were able to make this moment so much more beautiful when its officers showed up at the cemetery to surprise Sierra.
… two police officers on horseback and a dozen more lined up waiting for her.
USA Today reported that the photos were truly spectacular, “By Sierra’s side in her prom photos is IMPD Chief Bryan Roach. She smiles, cradling a photo of her father in her hands. And in other photos, she’s surrounded by dozens of police officers and sheriff’s deputies.”
“There were a lot of laughs, some tears, but most importantly, there was love,” a video, posted by Indianapolis Police said.
“Sierra, we know your father is smiling from heaven. Know that your Blue Line Family will always be here for you.”
You cannot watch this video without tears coming into your eyes. This is wonderful. These people made an amazing day for Sierra. God bless each and every officer.
