(April 27, 2015) – A simple act of kindness turns into a viral sensation.

According to The Bolton News, Christian Trouesdale, 18, works part-time as a store assistant at Aldi. A 96-year-old man asked Trouesdale for help getting home because he was afraid of the strong winds.

The employee held the man’s hand and carried his groceries all the way to his home.

The man returned a week later and asked for assistance again, and the employee happily obliged.

A passerby saw the par together and snapped this adorable picture.

He gives credit to his mom and dad, saying they raised him to treat others the way you want to be treated.
