BEIJING, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- A man in U.S. called Glen Fritzler surprised his parents by designing a corn maze featuring his parents' portrait with a note: "Thanks mom and dad!".

When Glen's parents watched the gigantic drawing aboard the helicopter, they were speechless with tears rolling down.

Ed and Eileen Fritzler have been married for 63 years. In 1955, they bought the farm south of La Salle and raised five children. The farm was then tended by their children, with gigantic maze fashioned out every year.

This is the ninth year for the Fritzler corn maze, one of the largest attractions in Weld County every fall.
