Loving Dad Meets 38-Yr-Old Daughter At Her Work To Salt Her Walkway So She Won’t Slip On Ice

When Elizabeth Bautista Boyd arrived at her company parking lot on a cold winter morning, to her surprise, she found that her dad was there waiting for her.

Elizabeth’s dad had driven to his daughter’s company parking lot in Muskogee, Oklahoma, early in the morning, to be sure that he was there before his daughter arrived. Streets and sidewalks had frozen the night before, so her dad had woken up early to bring some de-icing salt so that he could sprinkle it on the ground to make safe Elizabeth’s path from her car to the company’s front door.

“You guys… THIS IS MY DAD,” Elizabeth shared.
