PAY IT FORWARD ( Jim Williams )

Chevelia Francis wants to attend her uncle's funeral this Saturday, but doesn't have the money to travel out of town.

Her neighbor, Jim Williams didn't know that when he approached us and asked about my sign.

The words, "I'm giving away $500. Ask me how." caught his eye.

We told him we were looking for someone to introduce us to someone else who was going through a rough time and needed a little help.

He instantly thought of Chevelia.

Chevelia has a tough time making ends meet but that doesn't stop her from giving to others.

Her neighbor, Jim, credits her with bringing their neighborhood together and maintaining that neighborly feel.

She works as a caregiver for six elderly ladies in Pensacola, helping them with their medication, grooming and home care.

When we showed up on her porch, she was asleep after working extra shifts.

She's been trying to make extra money in the hopes that she would make it to her uncle's funeral.

Miles Bentley with Hill-Kelley Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram had another solution.

Miles handed Jim $500 which Jim then gave to Chevelia.

Chevelia couldn't believe it and also said, it was more than likely that no one would believe her.

Chevelia called her mother to let her know she would be at her uncle's funeral.
