A group of young brothers in Texas stepped up to help an elderly neighbor after they discovered that she was facing jail time for the grass in her yard being too high.
The Reynolds brothers, from Riesel, Texas, reportedly saw a piece on the news about 75-year-old Gerry Suttle, who was facing jail time for the grass in her lawn being too high. The brothers soon realized that Suttle was unable to mow the lawn herself and, although they didn’t know the woman personally, decided to reach out and help.
“It's a summer day, we don't have season passes yet to Hawaiian Falls,” Blaine Reynolds said. "What else could we do but go out and help some people. 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.”
The Reynolds made their way to Suttle’s lot, mowers in tow, and began cutting the woman’s grass to help keep her out of jail. After a short time, others in the community joined in to help get the job done. In about two hours, her entire lot was cut.
“I cannot believe this,” an overwhelmed Suttle said after the amazing act of kindness.
“I am very seldom without words," she said. "This is one time. You might want to mark it down in history that I didn't have something to say.”
Suttle is now working to get the arrest warrant resolved with the judge. The Reynolds brothers, however, are just happy that they could help.
“I really wouldn't want her coming out here and doing it or paying someone else to when we could have just done [it] for free,” Brandon Reynolds said.
