This tweet from the City of Huntsville made our day.  The city shared this story from Susan Ready.

“There are some really good people in this world! Every time my son Cameron hears the City of Huntsville garbage trucks, he loves to run outside and watch.

This sweet man asked if Cameron would like to help him dump our can. That particular day was Cameron’s birthday. When I mentioned that, he told us that it was his birthday too! We ran back inside and made him a treat and were able to catch him before he left the neighborhood. He got out of his truck and hugged us both. He said that was the highlight of his day, and I told him it was a highlight for us too.

Thank you, God bless you, and Happy Birthday, Kevin!”
