'It's Not Often I Witness Something On This Level': The Most Touching Father-Daughter Dance

September 23, 2015

In 2009, Seattle Deputy Sheriff Kent Mundell was shot while responding to a domestic violence call. One week later, he passed away. He left behind a grieving wife, 16 year-old daughter, and 10 year-old son. He was 44 years old.

Last weekend, his daughter, Kirsten, got married.

His close friend and colleague, Officer Don Jones, walked Kirsten down the aisle.

Kirsten asked Don if he would dance with her for the traditional father-daughter dance.

But Kirsten had no idea what was going to happen next.

Before the song would finish, four Pierce County Sheriffs took turns dancing with Kirsten.

It got more emotional as each officer stepped in...

"Shooting weddings always allows for witnessing some private, special moments that nobody else has the privilege of being a part of," photographer Angela Lyons said. "But it's not often I witness something on this level."
