Writer thankful that an honest person found her lost purse
Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank a very special lady for her act of kindness at the Aldergrove Safeway store recently.
I returned my shopping cart to the returns area and did not realize until I got home that I had left my purse in it.
Our friend (Harvey Schultz) had died suddenly on Friday and I was distracted with memories of seeing him shopping in Aldergrove.
I had left my purse open and its contents were visible — my wallet with cash showing, my passport and credit cards and cheque book. A cornucopia of goodies for a less-than-honest person.
Apparently a lady rushed into the store with my purse, asking them to keep it in a safe place.
The staff at Safeway were amazed at such honesty.
I am truly grateful to you for returning my purse. But more than that, thank you for showing so may people today that one individual — yourself — made the world a better place today.
