“Sad because we have to be here. Honored, because we can be here,” said Major Jeff Young in a TV interview with Fox 13 in Tarpon Springs. Teresa Kondek, Aleena’s mom, secretly organized for the police unit to greet her daughter when she was dropped off for prom. Unsurprisingly, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. For Aleena, the moment was truly special. “They always say, ‘never forgotten,’ and I totally believe that. They’re always texting me, ‘How are you doing?’ and they step in with things that my dad did, and they’re amazing. I love each and every one of them,” Kondek told Fox 13. “I know he’s always with me. I just kept smiling all day because I know he’s watching down and I know he’s probably tearing up watching me,” Kondek added.
