After discovering that someone had taken his lawn mower, Gordon Blakeslee did not want to purchase new one and did not want the money to do so either. He want to have the one he had previously brought back to him.
“I’ve got 85 years on you!” I am unable to force”
According to WBNG, Blakeslee, 85, made the option to reside with other members of his family during his quarantine rather of remaining at his house in Harpursville, New York. This decision was taken in order to avoid the risk of spreading the disease.
But at some time over those few months, his red Craftsman lawn mower from 2009 vanished for no apparent reason.
According to Candace Blakeslee, who is Gordon’s daughter-in-law, everything that he has, even the things that he owns, has worth to him. She said that “it was something that was really important to him.”
Gordon was so intent on tracking down his lawn mower that he fashioned a sign and fastened it to the fence in the front yard of his home.
Candace put a photo of him up on Facebook in the hopes that someone would identify him and be able to help them find the lawn mower or the information they needed. However, after looking for almost a week, they were unable to find what they were looking for.
Gordon said, “I want you to give it back to me.” “When my wife was still alive, I would work out here for what seemed like hours at a time. It was the location of each and every one of my exercises.
Despite the fact that Gordon had stated that he did not want a GoFundMe page or a new lawn mower, kind people couldn’t help but wonder how they might assist Gordon after his story made it into the local press and people couldn’t help but wonder how they might help Gordon after his story made it into the local press.
Candace came back the next day with some extremely exciting news to share to the group. A donor whose identity is not known purchased a brand-new Craftsman lawn mower and gave it to Gordon to use on his property. It is still the same model even if it could not be a model from 2009.
The automobile was brought to his home by a deputy from the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, who paid him a visit at his residence.
It would seem that he values the very kind act that was performed for him and that he has expressed his gratitude for it.
That is very astounding, don’t you think so? To think that someone would steal from a guy who is 85 years old hurts my heart, but to learn that someone else purchased him a new lawn mower brings a smile to my face and makes me feel better about the world.
