Bride Whose Dad Died on Duty Brought to Tears by Wedding Dance Tribute (VIDEO)

kristen mundellMany brides look forward with anticipation to the part of the reception when they can grace the dance floor with the first man they loved: their father. The father/daughter dance is a sweet tradition, but one that can be tinged with sadness for women like Kristen Mundell, whose father, Sheriff's Deputy Kent Mundell, was killed in the line of duty six years ago.


For Mundell, however, her father-daughter dance ended up being a moving and surprising tribute to her late father that she never expected, all thanks to the fellow sheriff officers who wanted to make sure their fallen friend's daughter knew she hadn't been forgotten. 

Warning: You'll want some tissues for this.

Although we see highly choreographed wedding dances go viral almost every day these days, this is on a whole different level. The pictures of this dance remind us that nothing is more moving than seeing that a father's love for his daughter never ends. What a moving tribute to the memory and legacy of Officer Mundell -- and a touching reminder that though we may miss them terribly, the ones we love never really leave us.
