A Southwest Airlines flight attendant left everyone in tears after he sang ‘You Raise Me Up’ to the mother of a fallen state trooper.
Arizona DPS Trooper Tyler Edenhofer was killed in the line of duty in July 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona at the age of 24.
Tyler’s mother, Debbie Edenhofer, who was on a flight from Phoenix to Louisville to attend a ceremony honoring her son in his hometown of Jeffersontown, Kentucky, was honored by a Southwest Airlines flight attendant.
A Southwest Airlines flight attendant sang “You Raise Me Up” to the mother of the fallen state trooper.
A passenger named Sean Warren shared the video on Facebook with the caption:
‘Dear Southwest Airlines: So today I got on my flight to Louisville, wearing my headphones, taking up as much space as possible so that no one would sit by me.’
‘Sitting comfortably in my personal universe listing to one of my favorite jams, the public address crackled and one of your flight attendants interrupted me.’
‘He stated that we had a mother on the flight who’s son had been killed in the line of duty as a state trooper. He then proceeded to sing her a beautiful song.’
‘I just want you to know I think we should have more interruptions like this. In fact, it is no interruption at all. It actually makes things quite clear. And it shares, in a public way, a private burden this family carries.’
‘To the flight attendant….thank you for leading us and for honoring them. To the mother…..”Thank you” seems so utterly inadequate.’
‘May you be blessed daily in your thoughts of your son’s service and sacrifice. May heaven give you in abundance what you missed here on earth.’
The employee, who sang “You Raise Me Up” to the mother of the fallen state trooper, was Scott Wirt. He works as a ground operations agent for Southwest.
