SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County sheriff’s deputies gave this young boy quite the warm welcome to San Antonio while wishing him a happy birthday, from a distance of course.

Kyler Thompson and his family just relocated to San Antonio and they don’t know anyone in the area.

However, after seeing a social media post from Kyler’s mom, asking for people to drive by and wish Kyler a happy birthday, the sheriff’s office decided to lend a hand.
