Years ago when just a child my pet guinea pig died while I was at school. When I got home my mom yelled at me and told me to "bury the stupid thing."  I took Conejo and the shovel and walked into the woods behind the house. My neighbor man saw me weeping and came over.  He took the shovel from my hand and then dug the hole in the ground. He stayed with me as I buried my pet. His loving touch is something I will never forget about him. Just a simple thing, but fifty years later I still remember.

You needed kindness not yelling that's why you remeber nice man
