Saying farewell to a loved one for good can be an unbearable experience, and if you’re a child, the agony is multiplied.

This is the story of Sierra, a teenager who lost her father in a gunfight while working as a local cop. The child regularly paid a visit to her father’s grave since she never forgot him. She wrote him heartfelt letters and laid flowers at his grave for four years.

In 2013, Sierra’s father passed away tragically while carrying out his duty. The cop had heard a woman screaming inside this residence during his shift and had rushed to find out what was wrong and rescue her. He unfortunately took a lot of shots. However, the woman and her children were saved by his death. Posthumously, the American state of Indianapolis recognized him as a hero.
