Thanks for retriev­ing my purse

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
