VIA| Perry Moore and his devoted wife have enjoying living in their Kansas home since 1992. Their biggest pleasure in life is inviting their 12 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren over to their home.
But it breaks the old couple’s heart that the kids can’t play in their backyard. Why? Over the years, the trees and bushes have become so overgrown, the yard simply can’t be used.
Because of Perry’s age and medical condition, he can’t take care of the yard. But when neighbors took notice, they took it upon themselves to help the old couple.
“It’s hard to have to depend on other people, but when you can’t do it you have to kind of suck it up and swallow your pride,” Perry said.
Then suddenly the neighborhood unified as a team to help the Moores landscape their yard. They dedicated time in their busy weekend schedules to fix up the yard and surprise the Moores.
Even neighbors who couldn’t be there physically to help lent their yards for bulk pickup and other tasks.
When the couple learned that their neighbors were going to help, they were deeply touched by the act of kindness. They even threw a neighborhood barbecue to celebrate the accomplishment as a community.
Now Perry and his wife can welcome their grandchildren and great grandchildren into the house and see them playing in their backyard.
