This will bring a tear to your eye!

The power of a simple not from the song of a soldier!  Very touching!

An 8-year-old boy found $20 in a Cracker Barrel parking lot but didn't spend it and gave it to a soldier to thank him for his service.

The boy from Ohio was just five weeks old when his father who was in the Army was killed in Iraq.

In honor of his dad's memory, the boy wrapped the money in a touching handwritten note and handed it to a soldier who was eating lunch at the restaurant:

He wrote:

“Dear Soldier - my dad was a soldier. He's in heaven now. I found this 20 dollars in the parking lot when we got here. We like to pay it forward in my family. It's your lucky day! Thank you for your service.”
