We would like to thank the 13-year-old young lady and her parents who returned the money we lost. We mistakenly dropped it in the parking lot of Joann Fabrics in Highland. It was a large sum of money in an envelope that we needed to pay a bill.

We are grateful to that girl and her parents for your honesty and concern in getting the money back to us. We realize it is her trustworthiness that prompted her to seek us out and return the money.

Thanks to that girl and her parents, and all parents who encourage their children to do what is right in life.
