"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched… but are felt by the heart. Even with this, I could never repay you for what you've done for me. I sacrificed my teenage and early adulthood of not having fun for this moment.

"I couldn't stand you going to work at night, some nights I didn't even sleep knowing it shouldn't be like this. Never have I wrote a check wanting this to be the first one. To all my friends that stood by me over these last 6 years I appreciate you.

Local station KHOU reported he saved the money by eating microwave pizza and not attending parties throughout his time at college, all in order to help his grandparents, who have been paying their mortgage for 20 years.

"While many teenagers are partying and having fun I had to sacrifice, and finally this Sunday on March 20th, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.," he told PEOPLE. "I will experience tears of joy by handing them a checque paying off their house so they can retire from work."
