Thanks to the unknown person who found and returned check

To the Editor:

— It is gratifying to know that honest people are very much a part of our community.

The other week I was given a personal check and put it in my pocket thinking it was safe and secure. Then I went on to the mall to walk around as exercise.

When I arrived home, I could not find the check. Somehow or other the check had worked its way out of my pocket. I called the person who gave me the check to suggest payment be stopped on it. A few days later the postman delivered the check back to its owner. A note said the check had been found in the Sears store. There was no signature to the note.

To whomever did that good deed, please receive my deepest gratitude for your act of kindness.
