The pair celebrated an important anniversary while sipping tea and munching on cookies.
When Bexley was just a one-year-old, she nearly died from choking on a coin. Luckily, Corporal Patrick Ray was dispatched to the scene and saved her life in time.
To mark the one-year anniversary of the incident, the 2-year-old was prompted to do something special for Ray. So, with the help of her mother, she held a tea party for the Corporal.
Huff Post relays that on July 17th, the pair sat down to a beautiful tea party at a park in Rowlett, Texas. As the photos, captured by professional photographer Chelle Cates reveal, the two had a lovely time.
Bexely isn’t likely to forget the Corporal’s actions anytime soon. The girl’s mom, Tammy Norvell, told CBS:
“Whenever I do ask my children ‘what do you want to pray for?’ Bexley always says, ‘Officer P Ray. Officer P Ray!’”
The law enforcement worker will always remember the date, as well. Apparently, saving Bexley, who was 22 months old then, was a turning point in his personal life and career. He said:
“[That] day is right up there with my children’s births. It has made me want to change people’s images and thoughts about these men and women that serve us everyday.”
Considering that most stories concerning the police nowadays involve violence, this news is a welcome respite.
