Not every thief leaves a note for their victim, let alone a $5 bill, but one young boy in Washington state did.
What’s more, the note was so amazingly thoughtful that victim Chrissy Marie would love for the chance to find the young boy who left it so she can return his money.
“I am sorry that we stole your wind chime our mom died and liked butterflies so my sister took it and put it by our window I am sorry this is only money I have please do not be mad at us,” he wrote, and signed it, “Jake.”
In a update posted to Facebook Friday, Marie both included a picture of the touching note and added her own, writing that she was prepared to hand over another wind chime so both Jake and his sister could each have one:
“Well Jake, I not sure who you are but you can come get your money back sweetie,” she wrote. “I had 3 of those wind chimes you can come back get your money back and have 1 also so both of you have your own. I am not mad please come over to my house.”
A resident of Lakewood, about an hour south of Seattle, Marie told local station KCPQ that she knows how difficult it was to deal with the loss of a parent, as she had lost her mother when she was only 5.
Stories about compassion for strangers are always a reminder of the human spirit. This is a truly heart-wrenching tale — but one that, hopefully, will wind up with a happier ending for Jake, his sister and, of course, for Chrissy Marie.
Of course, for that to happen, Marie must first find Jake, wherever he may be. Here’s hoping she does.
