Ed Zamora has been with his wife for 33 years, and picked her up at the airport last month. Instead of getting her at the curb, he showed up with his trumpet, and played "What a Wonderful World" as she came down the escalator.

He says he did it because they always hear that song when they're traveling for some reason. She was traveling without him this time, and she said she hadn't heard it when they talked on the phone.


What a Wonderful Welcome

What a Wonderful Welcome! Ed Zamora surprised his wife of 33 years Melody this afternoon upon arrival at Austin-Bergstrom. Melody was returning home from a two week trip to Spain. Ed showed up in Bag Claim with flowers in one hand and his trumpet in the other. When his wife stepped foot on the escalator, Ed took a deep breath and serenaded her all the way down by playing their song, "What a Wonderful World!" And that's what you call, a wonderful welcome! Ed & Melody, thanks for sharing your special moment with us! And welcome home Mrs. Zamora!
