Kelly walked up to the family said – “Please let me bless you today.”

A similar event occurred in Texas.
A man in his 50s or 60s went to buy some food and medication for him. When he was coming back from the store he had a diabetic episode in the parking lot. He was unconscious for some time and when he woke up his food and medication had been stolen.
He went back to the store asked for help from the store security and the officer on patrol. The officer was Koryciak and she offered to pay for his medication and other items for him. She even bought $25 worth of vegetables and food.
While talking to the reporters’ the officer said that diabetes runs in her family too so she connected with him and if the situation comes she would again do the same in a heartbeat.
