Riley and Emily Portie were riding a motorcycle on May 24 when they were struck and killed by a drunk driver in Orange, Texas. Officer Eric Ellison of the Orange Police Department responded to the scene of the crash, and was tasked with breaking the news to the couple’s next of kin. When he arrived at the house, he found their youngest son, Kazzie, home alone. Ellison told BuzzFeed News that while he was sitting with Kazzie, the 18-year-old said he didn’t know what he was going to do because he supposed to graduate from Little Cypress–Mauriceville High School less than a week later.
“I said, ‘You are going to walk!’” Ellison told BuzzFeed News. “Your mom and dad will have front-row seats looking down from heaven, and I’ll stand in their place. I’ve got your back.”
This was such a special moment. Thank you class of 2015 for making this such a memorable occasion for our family. So proud of you @kazz418 I love you so much. Throughout all of this you have been so strong and we are so proud of you. Thank you for being such a great brother. I am so excited to see what the future holds for you. I know mom and bubba are so proud of you. Again, love you brother and thank you for being who you are.Kazzie Portie
