The first day of school can be a stressful time for kids, but having loved ones at their side makes everything just a little bit easier. Joziah Longoria of Texas lost his father, Frio County corporal detective Justin Longoria, in an auto accident last spring!
It had been a difficult year for his family, but his father’s brothers and sisters in blue were determined to support him on his first day of kindergarten. When Joziah arrived that morning, a dozen uniformed officers greeted him with hugs and handshakes, as if he were their favorite “little deputy.”
“The FCSO is now and will always be family to his young boys. Justin Longoria was an amazing young man and investigator,” Chief Deputy Pedro Salinas said. “He loved serving his community and his loss has left our agency feeling incomplete.
Being able to put a smile on his children’s faces allows us to feel whole once again be it ever so briefly. He will forever be missed.”Check out Joziah’s emotional police escort in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story to touch someone’s heart today.
