The Son Of A Fallen Officer Wrote An Emotional Message On Instagram That Will Bring You To Tears
June 25, 2015
Fallen Cincinnati police Officer Sonny Kim's son wrote a public Instagram post with an emotional thank you to his father.
Tim Kim posted an illustration of a Cincinnati police badge along with this note:
"Hey dad, thanks for everything. Your life was cut short, but in the time you were here you taught me so much and shaped who I am today. I'll always remember riding our bikes to the bike trail, running that 5k with you (even though you were far behind me ), I'll miss your selfies that you would send me from work in the morning, I'll miss your stupid jokes that I would purposefully make a straight face at even though they were actually funny, I'll miss making fun of you for looking like a potato, I'll miss your random texts just to tell me how proud of me you were and how much you love me, and most of all I'll miss you coming home from work every night and giving you a hug and just feeling safe and comfort around you.
Thank you for making our family and so many others feel safe, and I wish I could tell you all of this in person, but I can't. But that's okay because I know you're watching me now, and I hope that heaven lets you look at Instagram posts! I guess it'll be Joshua, Jacob, Mom, and I from now on but that's okay because we all know you're looking out for us. I'm so proud of you and so proud to call you my father and my hero. I'll see you soon dad."
In addition, Tim asked everyone who read his message for a small favor:
"Please just give your parents a hug and tell them how much you love them, cherish the moments you have with your family and parents because life is already short enough and you can't determine when someone will pass."
Tim is one of three boys. The officer is also survived by his wife, Jessica.
