“I’m not much of a ‘bragger’ but I’m going to brag! My husband, Joe Revay, is one of the sweetest, kindest, most selfless, and humble men I’ve ever known.

A little boy on the news, Reggie, in Maple Heights was mowing lawns and had the police called on him for, ‘mowing a piece of the neighbor’s lawn.’

We were so pissed! Here’s a 12-year-old (and his siblings) trying to make some money and keep busy, so my husband decided to step in.

You don’t discourage kids or anyone from doing the right thing! Especially in today’s world.

My husband, owning a landscaping business decided to reach out to his mother and help him out with some equipment (a blower, etc.) to make it easier for him to do these lawns. 

My husband went to buy him a blower and surprised him at one of the jobs he and his ‘crew’ were at! (My husband was in touch with Reggie’s mom). 

He was soooo excited! My husband described it as, a kid on Christmas morning. So adorable. What a wonderful young man and family!

God bless them! And I’m so blessed to call this man my husband! Be kind, respectful, humble, and spread love. The world needs more Joe’s”
