Here's a heartfelt story that will touch your heart.

Deputies in Texas lined up to welcome Joziah Longoria to his first day of kindergarten after his father, a detective with the sheriff’s office, was killed in a vehicle collision earlier this year as he was on his way to work.

“Today we were proud to escort our little deputy to his first day of Kindergarten. Although we still miss our brother in blue, Justin Longoria, everyday, it’s these happy memories we want to continue to make for his children,” the Frio County sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.

The little boy's mom added: “Moments like these make it hard but Justin and Joziah have a whole family behind him to make this easier. May God bless his year with all smiles and knowledge I know Justin is really happy and proud to see this."
