The unknown man pulled off to the side of the road to honor her grandpa as the procession drove by.

“While in the funeral procession today to Jefferson barracks to lay my grandfather to rest a man driving a truck pulled off and made honor as we all proceeded. Thank you for showing such great honor - I wish I could personally thank this man,” Collins said on Facebook.

Collins’ grandpa, Fred Ladage, is a WWII veteran and served in the Navy.
