Will’s fiancé, AJ Johns, filmed the moment Henry Joe started digging and found the bottle.

In the video, Henry Joe found a jar and began to read the note.

“You’re already the best bro, and also the best friend, so will you say yes and be my best man? Love, Will,” Henry Joe said as he read the note out loud.
