Candice Glover's family welcomes her home

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

A sea of emotions ran wild throughout the Glover household Saturday morning, as they waited for Candice Glover to arrive home, for the first time in four monts.

When she pulled into the drive way, the tears started pouring from everyones eyes.

"It was overwhelming. I mean I hardly could contain myself. It was just awesome seeing her home again," said her father, Jonathan Glover Sr. 

Before Candice arrived, Jonathan told me he wasn't going to cry. That all changed after he hugged her. He stepped to the side to wipe tears from his eyes.

" I sure was... I just had to fight them back," he said.

But everyone else out here sure didn't fight the tears. Not even her little brother Jonathan Jr, who says the first words he whispered to her were "I love you"

 "It felt good. I was nervous at first cause I ain't seen her in so long. It just fet good," said Jonathan Jr.

"I'm so happy. Oh my gosh, to be around the people who love and care about me and supported me from day one. I'm so happy," said Candice.

But that's not all Candice was happy about.

She wanted to eat the good southern food her family prepared for her: macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, meat balls , string beans, and cake.

 "It just melted in my mouth," she said.
