Memphis police take daughter of fallen officer to father-daughter dance

MEMPHIS --In July of 2011, Memphis Officer Tim Warren, was shot and killed in the line of duty while assisting with a domestic situation.

Officer Warren was survived by his wife and two children who will never be able to enjoy the everyday experiences with their father/husband due to this horrific incident.

Officer Warren's daughter named Jewel received an invitation to attend a father-daughter dance at her school. Jewel was only 4 years old when her father died. She was saddened by the letter and was at a loss.

Warren's widow reached out to Taylor Amen, a MPD Officer's wife, and Donna Kirk, a widow of a Memphis

Firefighter and both ladies began making contact with key people who assisted with getting several officers to willingly donate their time and escort Warren's daughter to her father-daughter dance.

Warren's daughter was treated to a trip to a salon, received long stem roses from each officer, and was even able to catch a ride 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 a honor," said Officer Amen.

Holliday Flowers and Lynn Doyle Flowers donated boutonnieres for the officers, a corsage and the long stem roses. A local photographer, Amanda Swain, also donated her time and talent with providing photos of this memorable event.

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