THE BRONX (PIX11) -- Ten-year-old Savannah Solis travelled all the way from Texas to the Bronx to meet dozens of NYPD officers.

Savannah warmed the hearts of the officers when she sent the department about 500 handmade thank you cards when Det. Wenjian Liu and Det. Rafael Ramos were assassinated in Brooklyn. The incident hurt Savannah so much she started to make the cards.

Savannah said, "To my heroes, I want to say don't stop doing what you do."

The cards helped boost morale at the 41st Precinct station house in Longwood, where Savannah received honors, and a heartfelt thank you herself. The girl’s itinerary includes a visit to the 84th Precinct in Brooklyn Heights, where Liu and Ramos were assigned.

Organizers are also trying to set up a time for Savannah to meet Ramos’ and Liu’s widows as well as the Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.
