DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

A 104-year old Dawson woman got a great Mother's Day surprise thanks to a good Samaritan who hand-delivered a gift after it was sent to the wrong address. 104-year-old Grace Cutts say there are still good people in this world and the woman who took Miss Cutts her gift hopes others will follow her lead.

 Lauren Altman shoots a video as she meets Grace Cutts at her home on Saturday with a special delivery.

"I saw the car stopped and I said oh my gosh who are they and what do they want,” said Grace Cutts.

Lauren Altman and her Aunt, Nancy Fryer, saw the flowers at the front door of a vacant home owned by Altman's Grandfather.

"So I told my Aunt we need to turn around, there's a package on the front door and they shouldn't be getting any packages there,” said Lauren Altman.

The flowers were delivered by Cutts' nephew who lives in Detroit. Altman and Fryer were determined to make sure Cutts received her package.

"I said what if these were the only flowers she got for Mother's Day,” said Lauren Altman.

Cutts welcomes the ladies into her home as Altman opens the package with these colorful flowers inside.

"I was just shocked those were the flowers they brought me,” said Cutts.

Altman posted the video on Facebook hoping her actions will encourage others to want to make the world a better place.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world,” said Altman.

The flowers now sit among other flowers that Cutts received for Mother's Day and says she's appreciative of Altman's and Fryer's good deeds.

"I was happy to get them, that somebody brought them to me even though they went to the wrong place,” said Cutts.

Altman says she videotaped the delivery with hopes that Cutts' nephew will see that his flowers were delivered.
