86-Yr-Old Wins Lottery Prize — And Heads Straight To The Store To Share The Love!

We should all aspire to be more like 86-year-old Marrion Forrest.

While she was on a trip to a nearby convenience store, the cashier recommended she buy a lottery ticket since she could potentially win $500,000. Not only did she agree to give it a shot, but she also promised that if she did end up winning, she would “take care” of him by sharing her earnings. Walter no doubt thought this was just a nice thing to say and didn’t think much of it… until she came back to the store with a fantastic surprise!

Although she wasn’t the winner of the grand prize, Grandma Marrion did manage to win $300. It wasn’t much in comparison, but she couldn’t have been more excited to split the money with the cashier. She even went all out with balloons and an envelope that read, “Walter won!” Luckily for us, Marrion’s granddaughter, Heidi Forrest, tagged along to capture Walter’s wholesome reaction!

Watch the heartwarming surprise in the video below, and don’t forget to share this sweet story.
