In this viral video, you will see the love and care between a Gabriel Forhan and his dad, Michael. The dad loves his son but is forced to stay away from home for months at a time as he is in the Navy and is deployed out to sea.

Gabriel Likewise, the son who is just 11, loves to spend time with his dad and misses him every time he is gone. When the dad surprised him from the back of his school cafeteria, the boy couldn’t help but jump into his arms and it was a heartwarming reflex.
