Setting an example

December 6, 2012 

KURT JOHNSON, Richland

I want to publicly thank the mother and young son who thoughtful returned my wife's purse. My wife unknowingly had left her purse in a Walmart shopping cart. Once we got home and my wife discovered the missing purse, she left to find it.

As I was frantically contacting Walmart to alert them of the problem, there was a knock at the door. There stood a mother and her young son holding my wife's purse! She wouldn't take a reward, explaining that she was "paying it forward" because some person had done a similar thing for her.

Thank for your efforts, and thanks for setting an example for us and your son to follow in our relationships with others.
