I read about this good deed on facebook. I copied it and pasted it. This young lady is amazing.
Melissa Skinny Wrap Earnest
I wanted to share with everyone something very amazing that happened to me earlier. I went in the dollar store to purchase some grocery items and while I was in there I saw a lady with her son he was to be in his 30's or 40's. she was helping him look through the DVD's in the bin. later saw her helping him look at toys in the toy aisle. I noticed that he was rocking back and forth and tapping his ears. while I was on the baby aisle I met them head on he looked at me got in my face and said very quickly " what your first name, middle name and last name?" I didn't flinch I just smiled and said " my name is Melissa Dianne Earnest". he proceeded to repeat my name over and over as they walked past me I noticed that his mother got on to him for being a little bit too loud. I met the mother later in the store and we talked for a little while she said they had never been able to put a name on what her son had. I told her when her son got in my face earlier that as soon as I saw him and I instantly was reminded of my son. as I talked with her I watched her son begin to line up water bottles on the aisle. I watched him put his hand in his ear as he was singing a country song that was on the radio he was rocking and tapping his feet. I told her about my son being autistic and the symptoms that I could see in her son that my son also had. she told me that he could memorize lines from movies and could put things together very easily. I ask her what kind of things do you like she told me cartoons and country music. she gave me her phone number and she and I are going to keep in contact. when I saw this man I could see nothing but my son as an older adult. we got the check out and he told me my name again and he also asked me for my sons full name which I gave him. I asked his mother and him to please stand by the counter after I got through ringing up my groceries that I had something that I wanted to give Jack. after I got through checking out i asked them to follow outside handed Jack some cartoon DVD's and a Johnny Cash CD that I had purchased for him in the store. his eyes just lit up and he hugged me and he ask his mother if they could go out to the car and listen to Johnny Cash. today was a bad day. but that all changed when God sent me a blessing. and that blessing is an amazing young man named Jack.

Sandy Orfanos cell phone 618 731 8911 or home phone 618 242 6263 My son died 2 years ago, he also had special needs as an adult. I found this comment to be heart warming and above kindness. The young lady that bought the music is a very special person. She also did a video about some woman who tried to get friendly with her man on facebook. It was so funny, look on her page you'll probably find it. She called the woman "Grabman".
