When a Massachusetts police officer pulled over a driver for speeding, she found the woman crying.

She had just found out her mother was being moved into hospice care.

After issuing the driver a warning, Somerville Officer Ashley Catatao couldn’t stop thinking about her.

So she ordered a delivery of flowers and sent along a note that read, “I’m very sorry about your mother. I hope you find comfort in knowing she lived a long life and will continue to live on in your heart and in your memories.”

For her kindness, the officer was honored by the mayor and police chief with a Beyond The Call Of Duty award.
