Betty wished to spend her dying days at the Carmel mansion, but medical issues forced her to relocate to Los Angeles.
The Brentwood home is listed by Marlene Okulick of Sotheby’s International Realty – Pacific Palisades Brokerage.
It was Saturday at the time. The queues were long, and the consumers were irritated. Debra wasn’t sure whether she had any money with her without her wallet.
She was able to pay for her items thanks to some little cash she found in her purse.
Debra’s anxiety level rose simply thinking about how long it would take to replace everything in her wallet. Her military ID and driver’s license will have to be replaced. Furthermore, she will have to take time off work because the offices will be closed by the time she arrives.
Debra received a signal from her home security camera that someone was at her front door as she was traveling home to Yulee. To her astonishment, it was a man who had been by to retrieve her wallet who had contacted her stepson to check the film.
“Hey, how are you doing? I found your wallet at Walmart,” said a man in the security video.
Debra claims that this man is her “guardian angel,” who came to offer her good news after she thought she’d lost her wallet for good.
“I’m like, ‘My God,'” she says. Debra said First Coast News, “This individual went out of his way.” “I get there and the wallet and along with the credit cards and everything are there.”
The Good Samaritan said on the recording that he had merely stopped by to retrieve her valuables. Walmart was roughly a 20-minute drive from Debra’s Yulee home.
“Hey Ms. Crosby, I found your wallet at Walmart in River City,” he said. “I’m going to put it by the Amazon boxes.”
This man had the option to turn back at any point, but he chose not to. Instead, he went out of his way to bring the wallet to Debra’s home.
“I’m thinking wow this is super. He didn’t leave his name. He didn’t do it or the fame for fortune,” Debra said. “He did it, I guess, for the right reason. It made me feel like what I’ve known all along that 99% of people are great, even though sometimes we focus on that 1% that do the wrong thing.”
Debra works at Yulee Middle School as a science teacher. She stated that she intends to utilize this event as a kindness lesson plan. This was something she knew she couldn’t learn from a textbook.
“If he is watching this, I want him to know that he makes me so proud,” she said. “I have three sons of my own and I would hope that they do the exact same thing.”
Debra posted the story on social media and with a local television station in the hopes of tracking down the man and thanking him for his efforts.
After a few days, she received a call from the man, who just said his name was Johnny. Debra claimed that a buddy of his noticed his nice act and persuaded him to call her.
The CCTV footage of Johnny dropping Debra’s wallet is seen below.
These types of stories serve as a lovely reminder that the world still has a lot of good in it. Let us concentrate on the positive while also attempting to mimic it and commit acts of kindness ourselves!
