West End Mall, August 6th

1 comment
This is lovingly directed to the man in the Shoppers in West End Mall on August 6th. I lost my (now) husbands birth certificate and SIN number in the parking lot. We needed it to get our marriage license. We retraced our steps in a panic and were getting so worried. He could have just used his drivers license to prove who he is to get the marriage license, but that remains the missing Birth Certificate and SIN number which is asking for Identity theft.

I went into the Shoppers with a heavy heart and little to no optimism left, I asked the cashier if it had been turned in.

The man behind me asked if it was a Quebec Birth Certificate. It was. He pulled the 32 year old document out of his pocket and gave it to me. In my relief I hugged the total honest stranger. And if my husband had been there, he would have hugged you too.

Thank you so much for your honesty. I can not express how much it means to us. Even if you hadn't have turned it in, even if you would have just thrown it out. or kept it in a closet forever, that still meant that someone with a dishonest heart wouldn't have taken it. And who he is, stays who he is and we won't have to spend 10 years sorting his identity from the thief's.

As grateful as we are, we had to do something to mark the the event. In honour of your honesty, a donation has been made to Child Find Canada. So no body ever feels lost. Thank you again and I wish you all the best. —Mr & Mrs.
