    8 year old Jaron Johnson was in Walmart in Pineville,Louisiana when he saw a $100 bill on the

floor. The boy wanted to turn the money in to the employee’s so they could give it to its owner. “He was a few steps behind me and said, 'Mom, look what I have in my pocket,' and he said, 'Can we turn it in to Walmart and give it to the rightful owner?' Jodie Johnson, Jaron’s mom, told InsideEdition.com

    However the boy’s mother was not sure about turning the money in because anyone could take the money. She was still proud of her son for wanting to do the right thing.

    Later that day, she received a call from 86-year-old James Grice’s daughter. Her father had lost the bill while he was shopping and hadn’t had enough money to pay for his groceries that day.

“I told her I wanted to meet them in person so my son could give it back. It was a huge lesson for my son."

The pair met last week and Johnson said it made her grateful that Grice was so appreciative. He lives on a fixed income so a lost $100 makes a major difference. To reward Jaron, Grice gave him a $20."Jaron’s got a big heart," Johnson said. "He has a passion for others. He has always shown his integrity and heart for others."
