Letters to the Editor

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.
