FORT SMITH, Ark. (WCMH) — A heartbreaking viral Facebook post describes the interaction between a little boy and a man who lost his grandson days earlier in Arkansas.

In the Facebook post, the woman says she and the little boy were at Target when the little boy, Owen, grabbed three stuffed dinosaurs.

As the boy is trying to decide which dinosaur to keep, a man approached and began to interact with the toddler, according to the post.

After a little while of playing with each other, the man pulls out $20, gives it to Owen and says “I just lost my 2-year-old grandson last week. You take this money and buy this boy all three dinosaurs,” the post states.

Owen made sure to say thank you after the man rubbed his back and walked away.

The post has more than 130,000 shares and 15,000 comments since being shared on Saturday.
