Just days after losing her policeman father in the line of duty, a little girl had the company of many other Phoenix police officers to witness her graduation from kindergarten.
Department spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos tweeted photos of the Raetz family occasion Wednesday morning.
“We are family,” Martos wrote.
Officer Daryl Raetz, 29, was hit by an SUV and killed early Sunday morning while on duty. The six-year veteran had also served in Iraq.
Martos wrote that Hailey received a standing ovation at the ceremony.
