Oliver’s mother Danielle posted the photo of her 5-year-old son sitting with Officer William Klees to her Facebook page.
“Tonight I saw Oliver’s eyes light up like I never have before,” she wrote. “We were at the mall and he was mid tuck and roll in the play area when I saw his eyes shift to something behind me. I asked what it was and he said ‘mommy that police officer is sitting alone’ I said yeah, he is. You can go ask to sit with him if you want. Without hesitation he ran over and said ‘sir could I please sit with you’ they talked for over 45 minutes and it made Oliver’s year.”
Danielle told WSAZ she was moved by her son’s kindness to a stranger.
“I was getting him food, and I was, like, crying the whole time,” she said. “I couldn’t even order.”
Danielle said Officer Klees told her it meant a lot to him as well.
“It was really the highlight of his day because, you know, he doesn’t really get to have those good conversations,” Danielle said. “So I think it really meant a lot to both of them.”
