ATLANTIC CITY -

Most people like to receive well wishes on their birthday, so two sons went above and beyond for their dad.

Linwood resident Chris Ferry says that his sons wanted to do something special for his 62nd birthday, so they bought him a billboard. The sign was posted in Atlantic City and contained their father’s phone number.

Over 10,000 people have now called and texted Ferry to wish him well.

Ferry says that he is doing his best to respond to every one of them.
