GARDEN CITY, Mo. -- Brayden Johnson is not your typical four-year-old boy.  Each year his family finds some way to give back to the community and this year when his mother Cathe asked him, his response shocked her. Brayden told his mom he wanted to make sure all the graves in the cemetery had flowers.

"He's got the biggest heart that I've seen in a child, he's just so loving, caring, he's amazing," said Cathe Johnson.

The idea bloomed after an afternoon Brayden spent with his grandmother. The two were placing flowers on her parents' graves.

"They were putting flowers on graves and he was so upset when they were done because half the cemetery didn't have flowers on it," said Johnson.

So now Brayden's goal is to make sure everyone who is buried in Garden City and Harrisonville has flowers.

"I wanted to do something special for the people who passed away," he said.

Last year the Johnson family adopted a Christmas tree for a family through the Salvation Army. Brayden's parents and grandparents have helped start him out with some flowers, but they are also taking flower donations so Brayden can accomplish his goal.
