After shopping at the Home Depot on Merrick Boulevard on Friday, July 5, I rolled my cart outside. I thought I had taken everything out, but I left my leather bag containing my wallet, a camera and important papers in the cart.
I was halfway home when I discovered I did not have my bag. I went back to Home Depot and found the cart in the same position, but the bag was gone. I inquired inside. No one had turned it in. That’s it, I said to myself.
When I returned home my wife met me at the door and said “a nice young couple just brought over your bag that they found in the cart.” I was shocked. I never expected to see that bag again.
I am so sorry I did not get a chance to see them. I would like to thank them personally for being thoughtful and honest. Thank God there are still people like them who care about others.
