This was Crites’ comment: 

“Tell you son I said thank you so very much! That little boy he helped is my son and is autistic, I worry everyday that he is going to get bullied for being different and your son just absolutely warmed my heart. If there were more children like him I wouldn’t worry about such things.”

“I hope that this will be the beginning of a new friendship for both of our sons. Your son was so sweet.”
