Losing a spouse is hard enough as it is. Then, there is the added pressure of picking up where they left off – managing the house, raising kids, and all the little things that you never even really realized they did in the first place.
Leigh Ann Skoda is currently experiencing all of these worries on top of grief after her husband passed away. Still, she found a reason to be grateful when she saw a random act of kindness from a FedEx delivery man show up on her home security camera.
Leigh Ann’s husband, Adam, passed away at age 42 after a seven-month battle with cancer. He left behind not only Leigh Ann, but the couple’s three kids as well.
Since Adam’s passing, Leigh Ann has been doing her best to manage everything on her own. Recently, Brian Scholl, who drives a FedEx truck around her area, saw Leigh Ann struggling to put air in her tires. She asked him for some help and the two chatted a bit. Upon learning about her circumstances, Brian told her to reach out any time she needed some help.
Leigh Ann didn’t think much of it, and was grateful for the help with her tires. Then, recently, there was a snow storm that left her porch and sidewalk covered in snow. She hadn’t gotten to shoveling it quite yet when Brian pulled up to her home in his FedEx truck.
He didn’t have a package or even ring the doorbell, he simply took it upon himself to clear the snow for her – a small gesture to help her out. But unbeknownst to him, Leigh Ann’s front door security camera captured everything.
Upon seeing the footage, Leigh Ann posted the video to her Facebook page, publicly thanking Brian for his act of kindness.
Since posting the video, it has been shared hundreds of times, with viewers applauding Brian for his kindness and thoughtfulness.
It goes to show that not all heroes wear capes, some of them drive FedEx trucks and keep a snow shovel handy.
Check out the footage from Leigh Ann’s doorbell camera below & don’t forget to share this sweet story with your friends!
Doorbell cameras don’t only catch people stealing packages. Our FedEx guy stopped and out of the kindness of his heart, scooped my sidewalks. I truly feel like we cross paths with people for reasons. Thank you Brian Scholl for just being you, and being one of the people who truly ‘get’ our situation! #kindessmattersBrian Scholl
