Surprise for mother of ETX soldier

TYLER (KYTX) -- It was anything but your average Friday night for the mother of an East Texas soldier!  Sgt. Chris Grigsby showed up at On The Border in Tyler to surprise his mother Debbie.

Sgt. Grigsby has been deployed for 9 months.  Debbie Grigsby says one of her friends lured her to the restaurant saying she was feeling down.  And when she arrived she got the surprise of her life.

"I've had him in my prayers daily and the Lord has watched out for him.  And for me to actually put him in my arms before the year is up was way more than I could ever expect," Debbie Grigsby told us.

Sgt. Grigsby will not only be home for New Year's celebrations but also his mother's birthday.  That's coming up this Sunday.
