During their time spent at school, many youngsters have the opportunity to enjoy spending time with their loved ones and friends, as well as to participate in experiences that only come around once in a lifetime.
The annual school dance is something that majority of children look forward to attending. Some schools even have additional dances on special occasions, such as a dance only for a certain grade level or a father-daughter dance.
Avey Cox, age 8, from Arkansas was no exception to the rule that all small girls had the same desire of attending the daddy-daughter dance with their respective fathers. Sadly, she was unable to realize her desire since her father passed away in January of 2020.
But because to the generosity of her community, in the shape of the police resource officer assigned to her school, she didn’t have to skip the dance since he was there to accompany her in the year 2020.
The little girl was upset that she wouldn’t be able to go since her father had passed away, and she feared that she wouldn’t be able to go because it would be such a memorable night.
Harvey initially inquired with Avey’s mother, and then proceeded to ask Avey herself whether he may accompany her to the dance. The young lady’s response was one of utter delight.
Avey was ecstatic and delightedly agreed, finding a clever method to make sure that both of their clothing were complementary to one another in the process.
According to Harvey, “Every time I saw her at school, she’d remind me of how many days it was till the dance.”
At the conclusion of the night, another little girl approached Harvey and said, “Is this your dad?” Harvey reacted by saying, “Well, tonight I’m her dad.”
According to Harvey, this was the most memorable moment of the evening. Harvey assured Avey that he would keep his promise to take her to the father-daughter dance on an annual basis.
