Brothers eagerly help elderly stranger

It happened last summer in Riesel, Texas, just east of Waco. Mrs. Gerry Suttle, 75, was issued a notice to appear before a judge because the grass on a lot she owns across from her house was more than 18 inches high, violating city code. She claims she never received the notice, and when she failed to appear in court, a warrant was issued for her arrest. That's when four young brothers (three shown here) heard of her plight and decided to help.

"We haven't met her yet, but she's 75 years old and needs some help mowing. That's the least we could do," said Blaine Reynolds, one of the brothers. It was 90 degrees outside when they began pushing power mowers to slowly slowing cut the tall grass. But other neighbors soon noticed their unselfish deed, and showed up on riding mowers to help. Two hours later the field looked beautiful. Mrs. Suttle wept in gratitude and was speechless when she realized what the boys had done.
