Brody was “crying and was overwhelmed and just having a hard time” during the encounter. Fortunately, the woman dressed as the fictional princess knew how to handle the situation and comforted the child.

She even “went above and beyond” for Brody as she walked, danced and sat with him.

“She was a pure angel!” Bergner said. “She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!” JB
