NEW PORT RICHEY, Fl. – A third grade class got a huge surprise this week that moved some of them and their teacher to tears.

Paula Rigg was teaching her class and had no idea that her son was home from overseas. Her son, Marine Sgt. Paul Riggs, spent the past two years in Okinawa, Japan.

When he suddenly showed up at her door, she immediately gasped and burst into tears.

The video was shared

In the video, you can hear her class start to chatter amongst themselves, explaining to each other what was going on.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Riggs hugs her son, telling him, “I love you!”
