100-Year-Old Lady Cried Tears Of Joy When Garbage Collectors Surprised Her With A Birthday Cake

This elderly woman received the sweetest surprise from her garbage collector friend for her 100th birthday.


In this video that has been going around the internet and melting people’s hearts for the past few days, garbage man Ben Bird is shown walking up a garden path with a white and pink birthday cake in hand.


The birthday cake was for his good friend, Dorothy Ballard – known as Mercy to family and friends – who turned 100 years old that day!


Ben had been collecting Mercy’s garbage for 8 years. Through his weekly visits, the two developed an unlikely friendship. They chat every Thursday for roughly ten minutes – from 8:00 to 8:10 – which is the time of Ben’s visits. Through their brief conversations, the pair were able to talk about everything, from family to technology.


Ben promised to Mercy that if she reached 100 years old, he’d show up at her doorstep with a birthday cake. As Mercy kept her end of the bargain, Ben recruited two of his friends to surprise Mercy and celebrate this with her.


In the video that has been going around online since Mercy’s second-oldest granddaughter, Katy Smith shared it, and Ben is seen walking up her garden path and waiting by the door with a cake. When she opened the door, the men began to sing her a happy birthday, and Mercy is seen burying her face in her hand, clearly touched and surprised!


Then, she blew out her candles, and Ben told her to make a wish, suggesting that it be living to be 105.


Katy is thankful to friends and neighbors like Ben, who took time out of his busy day to make her grandmother feel special.


Watch the video below to see the touching moment when Mercy received her birthday cake from her friend:
