Just a word a thanks to the couple who found my purse at Save-A-Lot in Milan on Aug. 21.

I was there shopping and after I packed my groceries up I turned to the lady next to me and helped her put her box of groceries on the cart and we took them out to the car. Then I realized I had left my purse on the counter and just walked out. I went back in and it was nowhere in sight. I left and came home and about an hour later this couple brought it to me. They had found it on the ground at Save-a-Lot.

Everything was still in it. Thank God and thank you!

Carol Muilenburg,
Milan
