Dad has emotional reaction after son flies in to surprise him for Father’s Day: ‘Pure love’

You can’t put a price on a gift like this. There’s monetary value — then there’s sentimental value. 

Last Father’s Day, a son gave his dad the ultimate surprise. Keoni Stones wanted to give his dad a special gift, but sending something in the mail just isn’t the same as showing up.

Stones’ dad was on his way to put a box in the garage. He was so oblivious to what was coming that he didn’t even notice Stones at first. 

“Hey!” Stones shouted

His father’s head whipped around. The dad was in shock. He put the box on the ground and immediately ran to hug his son. The father was brought to tears and wouldn’t let his son go.
