I want to give a special thanks to the good Samaritan who found and turned in my purse that I had mistakenly left behind in a shopping cart Monday at J&J Foods on Limestone Parkway.

I have lots of relatives but no real family. Every cent I had was in that purse, but nothing was bothered.

I feel so blessed and I’m sure God already has blessed you for this act.
