Bride Puts Her Jacket On An Empty Chair. When I Found Out Why, I Can’t Stop CRYING!

Kristen was planning the most beautiful wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake, WA. Everything was perfect, except that her father had recently passed away…


Her father, Deputy Water “Kent” Mundell Jr., was a member of the Pierce County Sherrif’s Department when he was killed while in the line of duty. She was devistated that she couldn’t dance with her dad at her wedding – That’s when local police officers decided to do something AMAZING!

Before the wedding ceremony, a special tribute was paid to Kirsten’s dad. A chair was in the front row dedicated to him.


Different police officers took turns doing the duties that her father would have done if he were still alive.

Det. Don Jones walked Kirsten down the aisle…


Other Pierce County Sheriffs took turns dancing with Kirsten during the reception.



It was so wonderful that everyone came out to support her during this tough time
