Old Man Bonds With Young Boy at the Hair Salon

90-Year-Old Man and Young Boy Become Fast Friends and Melt Mom's Heart

Jennifer Moore Parker was nervous about keeping her son Justan busy during her hair appointment, which used to be a part of her routine that meant a few hours free to herself. However, she was pleasantly surprised that Justan was not only kept busy the entire time but actually made a new best friend in the form of a sweet 90-year-old man.

"Into the shop comes a little lady and her husband," Parker shared to Facebook. "He assisted her since she just had hip surgery two weeks ago. Then he sat and waited. He and Justan struck up a conversation that included farming, gardening, our animals, and spiders. I feared Justan was annoying the man when I noticed one of Justan's shoes was untied. I am ashamed to say he doesn't yet tie his shoes, so I mentioned it to him. The gentleman told Justan to put his foot up so he could tie his shoe."

Parker watched on for the rest of her appointment as this kind man "took Justan under his wing" and instantaneously bonded with her little boy. "I cried a tissue full at the immediate bond between strangers. A bond between the elderly and the young. A bond that made me miss my grandfather so very much today," she wrote.

Just as she was composing herself, her friend, a woman named Sheila, began setting up multiple egg hunts for Justan and let him fix her hair. "I cried the entire way home at the honor of meeting two beautiful people and at a friend who has a beautiful spirit," Parker said. "My day was made, and my heart is full."
