What a great story! Here's to Herbert, indeed!


What a sweet guy :) There is an older guy at my grocery story who sounds a lot like Herbert. I LOVE going to the grocery store when he's working!: ) I'm not far from Cincinnati myself--- I might be moving there in a year or so, actually. LOVE it there. :) I've done a few posts on my blog about Cinci, actually.


What a great story. I feel for Herbert and am glad he found a friendly face in you. I have such a soft spot for those old guys (stemming from my job in a previous life B. K. - before kids)

Thanks for sharing and thanks to SITS for directing me to you.


That's very touching!


Honestly, did you have to make me cry ;-) That is the sweetest story, thanks for sharing! Here's to Herbert...

Wow! That is such a touching story. What a blessing!


Herbert is awesome! I didn't even have to go to Walmart and he's made me smile.


There is a Herbert in my neck of the woods, too. I ran into him last week. He touched my heart as Herbert did your's... and of course, I also blogged about how a simple gesture can mean so much.

Thank you for sharing such a sweet story, and I LOVE the photo! He is precious!

I ♥ old folks!


Aww what a cute story :)


How great! Such a kind man! It really makes you think about how you treat others!


Oh happy tears! What an incredible story and such a sweet man!
Definitely a heartwarming story!

What a great story! Too bad more widows don't follow Herbert's lead.


what a cutie!!!!! He's so adorable!


Oh God I'm all teary now! I don't meet people like this in NYC often ... actually I can't think of any time at the moment when I have ...

What a beautiful person! You're so lucky to have encountered him that day ... I hope to meet a Herbert everyday of my life ...


That? Way cool. I think he has SUCH the right attitude that so few people do anymore. I can only hope that I'm not the cranky curmudgeon at his age and bring half the joy to people that he does.


wow just wow!

I loved this story.

I always try to encourage mothers when I'm in the grocery store.

Aw! Herbert looks like a cool guy!

Happy SITS day!


Awww... what a sweet ol' guy. Maybe he could get a part-time job as a greeter. Sounds to me like that job was made for him!


What a wonderful story! I wish I could meet Herbert!


Awwwww Herbert is great!!
