Photos of a bittersweet moment between the daughters of two slain Dallas police officers are going viral.
According to WFAA, Monica Vasquez is a family friend of Dallas police Officer Patrick Zamarripa, one of five officers killed by a sniper during a protest in the city last week. While at a memorial for the victims Monday, Vasquez snapped photos as the daughter of another fallen officer, Dallas police Sgt. Michael Smith, gave a handmade bracelet to Zamarripa's little girl in memory of their fathers.
"These little girls are forever connected by this tragedy, but hopefully – eventually – comforted by the fact their fathers were heroes," the post reads.
