You might want to reach for a tissue

Back in 2015, the Kleenex brand created a "Messages of Care" campaign including videos that might make you reach for a tissue. One event was filmed in Franklin, Tennessee, about 14 miles from Nashville. Franklin is where Miley Cyrus grew up, and is also home to Roxie Patton, long-time custodian at Johnson Elementary School.

Johnson Elementary, named after black physician Dr. Charles Johnson, opened in 1958 as an African American school. It was fully integrated in 1971. According to the school Web site, it's "not only a school, but a family," and custodian Patton is an important part of that family. How important? Watch this video to find out, and you might need a tissue.
