For those of us with loved ones serving in the line of duty – whether it’s in the military, as a policeman, or something else – we all have feared for the worst. While our loved ones assure us that everything will be alright, we can’t help but think what could happen.

A young named Tanner Brownlee can perfectly relate to that struggle. His father was a police officer.

In 2010, Tanner’s father died after an intense police chase. It is very difficult to lose somebody you love unexpectedly, but for a young man who was close to his dad, it was almost too much to handle.

Since the incident, his family’s life hasn’t been the same. Tanner struggled to cope with the loss of his father, but over time, he started to pick up the broken pieces and piece his life back together.

Wanting to have something he could use daily to keep his dad’s memories alive, Tanner decided to buy his squad car, which was going to be sold at an auction.

To raise money to purchase the car, Tanner started a GoFundMe campaign. Strangers from all over the world donated to help him purchase his dad’s old car – he had $12,500 ready to bid.

On auction, he was not sure whether or not he would win the car, but he had high hopes. He was bidding again and again, until his limit had come and gone. Sad to say, a man standing in the far back outbid him.

He thought it was over. He was never going to bring home his dad’s retired squad car. However, when the man stood up to collect the item, Tanner couldn’t help but cry. There a special surprise that he never saw coming.
