Death is final, no one comes back, they are gone – forever. Often family is left behind and has to go on without their loved ones. In Tarpon Springs, Florida Officer Charlie Kondak was shot and killed in 2014. Charlie left his family behind, devastated with the loss. But the family was not alone, they had extended family from the Police Department.
This year when Aleena, Charlie’s daughter was going to prom, her extended family was there! Teresa, Aleena’s mom, secretly planned to have the officers of the Tarpon Springs Police Department escort Aleena to the dance. They lined up and waited for her to get off the bus! Aleena was surprised and delighted to see the officers waiting for her!
