Rylee Long shared the touching story to Facebook:

"So, we go to Walmart today and Lakken happens to see an elderly man that was having a hard time shopping and finding things, due to him not being able to lift his head up and see straight. He can only see the ground and barely the sides of him, so Lakken looks at me and goes, 'Aunt Ry, can I please help him?' I of course said 'YES'.

He went up to the man and asked him if he would like some help! His eyes lit up and he said, 'Well yes that would be amazing young man! Thank you so much.'

Lakken was running all over the place for this man. The man was so happy - he told us that he hasn't had anyone offer help in years.

Lakken went and helped him check out and bag his stuff and had the store call the bus for his ride home. The man tried to tip Lakken and Lakken said, 'Oh thank you, but I don't need this. I enjoyed helping you.'

I'm beyond proud of Lakken, you don't see or get many people...let alone children, who do these things for people."
