- Such a heartwarming story, especially for this time of year.  Owen Williams, from the U.K. is asking Twitter for help after his neighbor, Ken Watson,  performed a kind act right before he passed away.   Ken recently passed away at the age of 87.  Own says he was a sweet guy, & everyone loved him.   He was also an interesting guy. Their local paper did a story two years ago after he WING WALKED on a plane at age 85.  Pretty impressive.  Ken's daughter knocked on Owen's door on Monday. She was holding a big bag, got pretty emotional, and said the bag was full of presents. It turned out that before Ken died, he bought Christmas presents for Owen's two-year-old daughter. And not just for this year. He bought enough gifts for the next FOURTEEN Christmases.  I’ll cry right now.  Owen & his wife obviously appreciated the gesture, but now are trying to decide what to do with each gift. The gifts are pre wrapped, so they’re not sure what is age appropriate as the years go on. So they’ve asked Twitter whether they should unwrap them & decide which ones to give based on their daughters age, or if they should just give her the presents randomly each year. 69% of people think random is the way to go.
