4 Young Boys Sneak Into Elderly Woman's Yard. When She Grabs Them, She Begins Sobbing

For the elderly, even the most common household chores can be a challenge. Washing out-of-reach windows, folding clothes, bending over to vacuum and finding the strength to mow the lawn all seem nearly impossible!
Such was the case for 75-year-old Gerry Suttle of Waco, Texas. Thankfully, Gerry shares a hometown with a group of four brothers who were determined to help!
While Gerry could still handle many of the in-home chores, mowing the lot she owned across the street from her home was out of the question. Over the months, the grass on the lot rose to more than 18 inches - and the neighborhood began to take notice.
Apparently, Gerry's grass was a big deal and she was issued a notice court summons because of it. Somehow the summons was lost before reaching Gerry and she never arrived to the court on her appointed day. Thus, a warrant was put out for the elderly woman, all because of her grass!
That's when the Reynolds family heard about Gerry's problems and decided to get involved.
Despite the blistering summer heat, four of the young Reynolds boys trotted over to the empty lot with lawn mowers revving. They proceeded to mow the overgrown lot and made sure it was in compliance of the city.
Blaine Reynolds told CBS News that mowing Gerry's lot was the right thing to do - no if, ands or buts about it.
"We haven't met her yet but she's 75 years old and she needs some help mowing. That's the least we could do."
Gerry was grateful for the boys' help and, since the lawn was compliant, the elderly woman thought she was in the clear.
