On behalf of my wife and family, I thank very heartily the person, who while running or jogging near the intersection of South Boulevard and Kenilworth Avenue, the afternoon of Monday, July 11, found my wife’s purse. He and, I believe, his wife, who remain unknown to us, turned the purse in to the police. We thank both of them very much. The purse contained important items, including a credit card.

We also thank the police officer who brought the purse to us. We were so surprised that we did not note his name. He has our gratitude as well.
