The first holdup was at 9:55 a.m. at First Interstate Bank on Avery Parkway in Mission Viejo, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department. In that case, the robber handed a teller a note demanding money and then showed a pistol. He fled with an undisclosed amount of money, authorities said.

Even then, when he was a decade away from dying, his simple gift touched me deeply, and I have kept it in my top desk drawer ever since.
