HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A Highland Springs High School student could have used some tissues when she received a big surprise during class.

Video of Anthony Johnson surprising his sister, Keiona, was posted on the Henrico County Public Schools Facebook page.

Johnson, who has been serving in the U.S. Navy and deployed in the Persian Gulf, walked into his sister’s classroom Thursday.

“I missed you,” he said while embracing his shocked and weeping sister.

“It’s been three years since I’ve seen her. I missed her a lot,” Johnson later said. “Like the best thing in the world right now. There’s no where else I’d rather be right now honestly.”

A stunned Keiona said it was a good surprise.
