Thanks for retrieving my purse
I WAS taking my usual very early morning walk at the parking lot of the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue at Wellington Crescent and Academy Road.
I park my car on the lot and walk around the building six or seven times.
As I was walking, I noticed a young man on a bike looking at me in a strange way as he pedalled out of the parking lot. When I returned to my car, I found that someone had smashed the passenger window of my car and stolen my purse.
Needless to say, this led to a flurry of events on my part — cancelling Visa and getting a temporary driver’s licence... Most importantly, gone were my hearing aids, without which I am almost completely deaf.
When my husband and I came home an hour later, there was a message on the machine: “I’m Debby. I found your purse in my back lane.”
I went over later in the day and gratefully retrieved my stolen purse. All my belongings were there (except for a few dollars), including my precious hearing aids.
I want to thank Debby Wall and her neighbour, Terry Candy. What wonderful people they are. I will not forget their kindness and will pay it forward every day.
