At some point in our adult lives, many of us feel the need to give back to parents in some way, to thank them for all these sacrifices, big and small.
Michael Green had this in mind when he dragged his father, Charlie, to the parking lot of a Piggly Wiggly. He’s heard the same story countless times: As a 16-year-old, Charlie lost the classic car he loved, a 1955 Chevy Bel Air.
It’s been 50 years since that car was destroyed, but Charlie hasn’t fallen out of love with it. In fact, he was so moved by the story of his car, that he cried seeing one just like it in the parking lot.
Little did he know it was already his: His son had bought it for his father, and it would only be a matter of time before he saw it in his own garage.
