POWDERSVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate mother got the surprise of a lifetime Saturday morning.

Tricia Holcombe Raby thought she was attending a family member’s birthday party at the Cracker Barrel in Powdersville, when out walked her son, Jake.

Jake Trotter, a Pickens native, has been deployed in Afghanistan for the past year with the United States Army.

“I’m just glad he’s home,” Raby said. “Thank you.”

Customers applauded and cheered as the two embraced.
