Missouri boy shows compassion at flowerless graves

GARDEN CITY, MO (WDAF/CNN) – A 6-year-old boy in Cass County, MO is on a mission to make sure all cemetery graves have flowers.

Braden Johnson’s mom says he has sold lemonade and brownies, among other things, for the past three years to raise the money.

He says he just wants to make sure no one is forgotten.

“I wanted to honor the people that passed away,” Braden said.

One woman was so touched by Braden’s compassion, she wanted to pay it forward.

She informed a news station about his good deeds, and he was awarded $300 for his kindness.
