Riders tempt bus driver to delay retirement

For almost 30 years, Gary Keimer has driven a school bus for an elementary school in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. He's watched a lot of kids grow up, and they remember him fondly because he's always in a good mood. They all know he's a huge Eagles fan, because he often sang the Eagles fight song with them on their way to school. So a bunch of parents and former students decided to pay him back.

In only five days, they raised over $5,000 -- enough money to buy Gary and his wife two tickets to their first Super Bowl, including airfare and hotel accommodations. When he pulled up to his last stop a few days ago, more than 60 people were waiting to surprise him. He was so blown away by their kindness that he's rethinking his plans to retire at the end of the school year. After such show of love, he says he may have to stick around a few more years.
