A family from Topeca, Kansas is looking for a man to express their gratitude for his random act of kindness.
Ann Darby and her mother, Rebecca Cox, got an unusual alert from their ring doorbell, “It was a guy mowing the lawn on a zero-turn, in dark overalls and a fluorescent shirt,” Darby said. “We assumed it was the city.”
The next day when Darby’s husband called the City of Topeka, they said it wasn’t them. Rebecca is blind, so Ann and her husband have been caring for her at their home in Caney, Kan. during the stay-at-home order.
Ann said they were planning to drive for three hours over the weekend to mow the lawn themselves, but couldn’t do so because her husband is an essential worker and she’s having to home school her children.
“He’s a truck driver so he’s been out and about,” Darby said. “And I’ve got a newborn and two boys so I couldn’t just go up there.”
Darby said that they don’t recognize the man on the mower but want to give him a message.
“Took a load off my mind,” Darby said. “Because I would’ve had to bring the kids and all that so whoever it was, thank you.”
Ann said they want to find out who the man is so they can thank him and let him know they would pay him if he wants to keep mowing Rebecca’s lawn.
