Kind­ness, hon­esty amaz­ing to me

The Modesto Bee - - Opinion -

On Nov. 4th, I ac­ci­den­tally dropped my wal­let out­side of a store in north Modesto. Within 10 min­utes, I re­al­ized it was miss­ing and re­turned to the store. It had not been turned in, but a shop­per told me she thought a gen­tle­man had picked it up and driven away. I headed home in in a state of panic to be­gin the process of can­cel­ing credit cards, re­plac­ing ID, etc. Imag­ine my sur­prise to find my hus­band, with my wal­let in hand, try­ing to call me.

The gen­tle­man had looked at my ID and de­liv­ered it to my home. My hus­band thanked him, but was so sur­prised that I had lost the wal­let but also its im­me­di­ate re­turn, that he didn’t get the man’s name.

If you are that spe­cial man, or know who he is, I want you to know that your hon­esty and kind­ness mean more to me than you can ever know. It is an in­di­ca­tion of the kind of amaz­ing cit­i­zens we have liv­ing among us.
