He wondered if anyone knew his son had died

His wife died years before. His son joined the Army, went to Iraq. The old man received word his son had died. All afternoon he sat on the back porch looking at the swing set. He wondered if anyone knew. His doorbell rang around 7:00 pm. He opened it to see hundreds of his neighbors holding candles in memory of his son.  (as told to me)
