What was lost is found

To the editor;

Sending out a huge thank you to whoever it was that spotted my purse (after me leaving it behind in a shopping cart on Dec. 9) and then turning it in to AG Foods.

It was nearing 5 p.m. when I realized my purse was missing and had to think back to when I had it last.

I had bought three large bags of groceries and had my purse in the child seat area of the cart. I had lifted the bags out of the cart without a second thought for my purse, threw the bags into the back seat, took the keys out of my pocket, and never giving it another thought drove home.

When I realized where I had left my purse I drove down to the store, and I was just hoping to hear that it had been turned in.

I was so grateful and relieved when they told me it had.

I have heard and read so many great stories and comments of the good in the people of Barriere. I am so grateful to live in a town where honest people want to live as well.

I do not know who found my purse, but I am so very thankful to this person who did. My night would have been so much different had it not been at the store when I returned last evening, and I can’t thank you enough for doing this.
