For those of us with loved ones serving in the line of duty – whether it’s in the military, as a policeman, or something else – we all have feared for the worst. While our loved ones assure us that everything will be alright, we can’t help but think what could happen.
A young named Tanner Brownlee can perfectly relate to that struggle. His father was a police officer.
In 2010, Tanner’s father died after an intense police chase. It is very difficult to lose somebody you love unexpectedly, but for a young man who was close to his dad, it was almost too much to handle.
Since the incident, his family’s life hasn’t been the same. Tanner struggled to cope with the loss of his father, but over time, he started to pick up the broken pieces and piece his life back together.
Wanting to have something he could use daily to keep his dad’s memories alive, Tanner decided to buy his squad car, which was going to be sold at an auction.
