In December 2016 Melissa Whittington, a mother from North Port, Florida, had a rather unusual trip to the grocery store. All she did was take her stepson, Phillip, to Walmart. But the story of their outing has since gone viral.
It was a warm and sunny day just before Christmas 2016 in Florida when Whittington arrived at the store. And while she didn’t notice immediately, there was an elderly man standing on the sidewalk. His name was Bill Greenham.
Greenham is 89 years old and had served his country in World War II. Now quite frail, the veteran needs a cane to keep his balance. Still, on that sunny December day in Florida he had, it seemed, been doing some grocery shopping of his own.
