This Little Boy’s Dad Died Suddenly In The Line Of Duty. He Was Struggling To Cope, Until He Received The Most Incredible Gift.
St Louis. Police Officer Blake Snyder lost his life in the line of duty after approaching a suspicious vehicle on a routine disturbance call. The suspect opened fire and Blake was tragically killed.
Blake was survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and their son, Malachi, and the local community have come together in the most heartwarming way to help the grieving family.
In an effort to provide some comfort to little Malachi at this difficult time, he was sent two teddy bears hand-made out of his late father’s police uniform.
And Malachi was delighted with them. The photo of him hugging his gorgeous new bears has gone viral around the world.
Elizabeth has thanked the St. Louis community for their incredible support and, on Thanksgiving, shared a heartfelt post to express her gratitude.
“These boys mean everything to me, and I’m thankful I have a bit of Blake still here with me. I am also thankful for every person who has generously helped support Chi and I.”
“The moment Blake saw Malachi for the first time will always be a memory I will cherish and hold on to. He wasn’t perfect (no one is), but he WAS a perfect father. He loved Chi with every fiber of his being and wanted the world for him.”
“I’m not sure where we would be without you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
