Paul stayed in Texas because this is where he met his wife, and the couple started a family together. But until 2016 Paul was living fairly independently from his own family. Indeed, he hadn’t seen some of his brothers and sisters for years. But on his birthday that year, it was all about to change.
To celebrate Paul’s 71st birthday, his wife, daughter and son-in-law took him out for a meal. They also brought his four grandsons along. It all began like any other celebratory meal out, but soon Paul would realize that this would be no ordinary birthday.
That’s because his daughter had been in touch with someone very special in the run up to the big day. So when they arrived at the eatery in Dallas, everyone took their seats and waited to be served. But then something completely unexpected happened.
