TOLEDO, Ohio, March 2 (UPI) -- An 8-year-old Ohio boy paid tribute to his dead father by giving a $20 bill he found in a parking lot to a passing soldier.

Myles Eckert visited a Toledo Cracker Barrel on Feb. 7 for an early lunch about the same time Lt. Col. Frank Dailey and his family were there, CBS News reported.

he spotted Dailey and gave him the money wrapped in a note, "because he was a soldier, and soldiers remind me of my dad," Myles said.

"Dear Soldier -- my dad was a soldier. He's in heaven now. I found this 20 dollars in the parking lot when we got here. We like to pay it forward in my family. It's your lucky day! Thank you for your service. Myles Eckert, a gold star kid," the note read.
