A good deed that was not unnoticed

To the Editor:

I was home for only a few minutes, putting my new purchases away, when a gentleman rang my doorbell. As I walked to the door, he waved my purple wallet in the window. It did not register at first, because I had no idea why this man had my wallet. As far as I knew, the wallet was in my purse. When I opened the door, he said to me, “I found your wallet in the parking lot at Lowe’s.” I said, “Thank you” and was thinking, “Wow, that was nice of him … should I give him a reward?” Before I had a chance to process this information, he was gone.

The entire transfer took a few seconds. I did not get a chance to ask him his name, tell him how grateful I am that he took the time to drive to my house to deliver my wallet and so grateful for his honesty, integrity and kindness.

Reports of people with malicious intent appear in the news every day. These people will go out of their way to make other’s lives miserable. It is refreshing to know there are people like this gentleman in this world – honest and ethical human beings that will go out of their way to make another’s life easier, even when they don’t know that person. I wish I knew his name so I could have it published here, since he definitely deserves the recognition.

Thank you again, Sir, from the bottom of my heart.
