Sometimes being a father means having to tuck your children into bed at night, sometimes it means having to read them a story, but overall it means supporting and loving your children beyond all else. The world has a fair share of supportive and loving fathers and this was recently evidenced by Hal Vaughn, who, instead of not seeing his stewardess daughter at Christmas, decided to board her plane and spend the entire flight with her. The heart-warming and amazing story was shared to the world by Mike Levy, who sat next to Hal on the flight, and was touched by the father’s love for his daughter.

He chose to board the plane.Hal decided that if Pierce could not come to him for Christmas, then he would go to her.
And the flight wasn’t short.The flight went from Florida, to Detroit, to Massachusetts – and the entire time Hal watched proudly, as his daughter did her job.
