Memphis police officer Tim Warren was shot and killed in the line of duty while assisting with a domestic dispute in July 2011. Officer Warren was survived by his wife and two children.
Recently, Officer Warren’s daughter received an invitation to attend a father-daughter dance at her school. She was saddened by the invitation due to the death of her father.
According to Fox 35 Orlando, Warren’s wife reached out to Taylor Amen, a Memphis Police Department Officer’s wife, and Donna Kirk, a widow of a Memphis firefighter. The women began making contact with several officers who volunteered to escort Warren’s daughter to her father-daughter dance.
Warren’s daughter enjoyed a trip to the salon, received long-stem roses from each of her police escorts, and rode to the dance in a classic 1972 Cutlass Supreme.
“We know we cannot replace Tim, but we can be there for his family when we are needed. It was truly an honor,” said Officer Amen.
Two local flower shops donated boutonnieres, a corsage, and the long stem roses. Amanda Swain, a local photographer, also donated her time and talent by taking photographs of this memorable event.
Officer Pfeil, one of Warren’s former colleagues, said, “It was an honor to be able to attend this event and to help keep Tim’s memory alive.”
