Police officers are like a family — they take care of their own. So when the daughter of one of their fallen brothers graduated high school, there was no way they were going to miss it.

Via Breitbart:

Sierra Cuesta never knew her father, Officer Fil Cuesta, who died when she was four weeks old. But she was raised by his partners and colleagues in the LAPD, who comforted the Cuesta family and have been with her at every milestone in her life since.

They were present again at the commencement exercises of Esperanza High School in Yorba Linda, California. ABC 7 Eyewitness News reports:

Sierra Cuesta stepped up to accept her diploma at Esperanza High School, with her proud mother and a large section cheering her on. Among those in the crowd were several LAPD officers, men and women who have become her family.

The officers worked with her father before his tragic death and they’ve known Sierra since she was an infant.

“Eighteen years ago, when we talked to the family at the funeral we told them – Sierra and Samantha, his children – for the next how many years you’re going to have another 20 to 25 moms and dads,” LAPD Officer Don Poirier said.

Eighteen years later, the LAPD is still caring for Officer Cuesta’s children.

Sierra Tweeted out her appreciation for her dad’s fellow officers.
