“What a Good and Amazing Man”

On 10 January 2014, Sharon Davis, age 71, of Portland, Oregon, was in the parking lot of a Safeway store in Clackamas. Oregon, when she dropped an envelope that contained $2,000 in cash and a $38,000 cashier’s check. She was in the process of buying a home. Fortunately, an honest man named Brian DiCarlo found the envelope and the money. He said, “My first thought is that this person, whoever it is, is a wreck, and they are probably losing their mind trying to retrace their steps.” This was true: Ms. Davis was searching for the money. Mr. DiCarlo called the non-emergency Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office hotline and turned over the envelope and money. Ms. Davis also called the sheriff’s office. Mr. DiCarlo said, “As it turned out, she was putting a down payment down on a house, and this was all for that stuff. If she loses it she can’t do what she was hoping to do, and I guess I would have hoped someone would have done it for me.” Ms. Davis got her money back; she called Mr. DiCarlo and thanked him. Ms. Davis said about him, “What a good and amazing man.” Mr. DiCarlo said, “I’m just glad I was in the right place at the right time.”
