TOWSON, Md. — “Nice hat” Andrew, yelled that from the back seat as dad drove and mom was holding his birthday cake.

The cake decorated with a cowboy hat on top was for Andrew’s 7th birthday.

The man in the next lane was Willie Walk who was donning a nice cowboy lid. At the next light on 924, Willie jumped out of his truck and gave Andrew his hat.

“Well, I saw the cowboy cake and found out it was his birthday, it seemed like the right thing to do," Willie said.

Mom, Tracy Stein Freund got on Facebook and put an all out bulletin to find Willie. She wanted to thank him for making her son so happy. It didn’t take long. Today they met.
