Late this afternoon, my husband drove to the LJ Market on N. Blagg to purchase a few needed items. Little did he know that when he replaced his wallet in his back pocket, it immediately fell through a hole in the pocket.
I happened to be bathing our dog and noticed a vehicle drive into our driveway. I told my husband there was someone unknown to me walking to the door.
As it turned out, a very young Hispanic boy (I would guess him to be about 10 or 11 years old), and his parents took the time and effort to find our address and returned the wallet. There was a little over $100 in the wallet, as well as credit cards. When offered a cash “thank you,” they refused.
I find it so enlightening to learn that parents are still teaching their children correct morals, integrity and respect. The young man could have taken the money and thrown the wallet in the trash. He chose, instead, to tell his parents, and they chose to take the initiative to find where we live and return it.
We thank you so very much and wish to let you and all of Pahrump know what a great job you are doing raising your child.
