Missing purse found

To the Editor:

I want to share some good news that happened to me Dec. 30.

I did some grocery shopping at Angelo’s Fresh Market, paid my bill and loaded my food in my car. Then I forgot to take my purse out of the cart.

I drove on down the street toward home when I realized what I had done, turned around and returned to the store. Employees were most helpful in checking to see if anyone had found and returned my purse to the clerks or office. No such luck, so I went to the police department to report my stupidity.

They received a phone call while I was there. A purse had been found.

Thank you very much to the person who found and turned it in, whether an employee or shopper. I am so grateful to the people of McHenry who are so honest and thoughtful.
