Four-year-old John’s neighbour, Mr. Walters, had recently lost his wife of 45 years.
One day when Mr. Walters was sitting alone in his backyard, crying softly and mourning the loss of his dear companion,little John crossed the garden and climbed into Mr. Walters’ lap and quietly sat with the old man for half an hour. When Suzanne, John’s mother, who was watching her son, later asked him, “What did you say to Mr.Walters?”
John replied, “Nothing. I just helped him cry.”
