A Texas couple, Riley and Emily Portie, were killed by a drunk driver while motorcycle riding on May 24, just days before their youngest child was set to graduate from high school.
Officer Eric Ellison was on the scene was pronounced dead, and it was his responsibility to inform the next of kin. When he arrived at the residence, he found Kazzie Portie, home alone. This story couldn’t be more tragic.
Officer Ellison promised the young man he would stand at his graduation, in place of his parents, an especially honorable act, since his own daughter graduated the night before.
The officer remained true to his word and attended the ceremony on Saturday. “I had to be the bearer of bad news for him, and I felt that was just the right thing to do,” Eric told Buzzfeed. When Kazzie collected his diploma Eric was waiting to give him a big hug at the end of the stage.
