A son who was getting berated on the phone by his mother for not returning her call gave her quite a shock when she opened the door to see him standing there. Patria Lucas, 64, put her hands on her head in disbelief as she heard a knock at the door and opened it to find Kris McMeekin, 47, standing there on November 3, after he travelled thousands of miles to surprise her. Kris lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, while his mother lives in Cloverdale, British Columbia, more than 4,000km away. Originally, Kris had been planning a trip to California with his friend, Moe, but when that was cancelled last-minute, the pair decided to visit another friend in Kelowna, B.C. – which worked out well for Kris, as he could also visit his mother. Having not returned a call from Patria from a few days earlier, Kris thought that would provide the perfect foil for his surprise.
