Thank you to Jamie in Vancouver for sharing this touching story...
There is gratitude in a small Alabama town for a man who became his neighbors' secret guardian angel.
Hody Childress was an Air Force veteran and a farmer in Ala., known for his humility and kindness. But what people didn't realize was that for nearly a decade he also donated $100 a month to the local pharmacy to help neighbors in need when they couldn't afford their own medicine.
Hody’s generosity helped many people before he died on New Year's Day at 80 years old. He almost took his secret with him, too, only revealing it to his children shortly before he died.
His children said the way their father lived made them want to be better people.
