February 21, 2016 A little girl named JadeLynn had a wish to take a Police Officer to lunch on her birthday. Her mother and a friend had an idea who they might ask. The local officer not only agreed but apparently went all out for the little girl to make her birthday extra special. The posts that were written up were as follows:
JadeLynn had a date with an officer. She had a blast he climbed up and down the play place with her. Ate with her showed her how to use all her cool new tools he got her. He even let her sit on his car. What a great day! Not only did he help celebrate her birthday but he helped her learn how brave police officers are. He coached her to the top and down the big play place, while she was afraid.
Tara Murphy also shared the following about the birthday event:
I was allowed to witness one of the most beautiful acts of kindness I think I have ever seen today. I saw a beautiful 4 year old little girls birthday wish come true. All she wanted was to take a cop out to lunch. I was asked if I could help find one and I could think of no one better for the job than Markie Waggamon and he was more than willing to be a part of this little girls birthday wish. He went above and beyond what was asked of him. Instead of just coming and having lunch with her he offered to pay, refused the money this wonderful little girl wanted to give to him, and showed up with a bag full of cop themed birthday presents. There is nothing more beautiful that seeing a child’s eyes light up and seeing their dream come true. Thank you so much ElizaBeth Hoskinson Gross for allowing me to be a part of this and thank you mark Waggamon for being the amazing man that you are. This is a day that not only will she not forget but I will not either.
