A special ceremony was held in the room so Ronald Grimsley could see his son graduate from West Brunswick High School.

"He lifted up his head and smiled with a grin. I knew he was listening," Travis later told WECT. "He was my father. I love my father very much."

The 54-year-old father of four died just hours later.
