Police sergeant Brian Grigsby and officer Capt. Ty Tyrrell located  him walking down and looking for something. They ensured that he was the same person with the said disease. They asked  him to go with them to be dropped back home. He joined after buying the cut flowers for which they paid the difference. They secured Melvin after making the payment of the flowers. They helped and were determined to complete Melvin’s mission.

Doris and daughter had the surprise of  life and got overwhelmed on getting the flowers. She was all tears. She said that it was unbelievable that he did not forget to buy the flowers even in that condition. Those flowers were very special for her. Melvin was unable to remember anything due to his brain problem but his heart remembered, because he loved her much with heart and soul.

The Sergeant and the Officer got commendation from all quarters, the public, the Government and their own department for setting an example for duty and being good human beings.
