$700 lost Please! If you found it email me!
It was in a business envelope. Lost it today either at Total Tire on Bruce St or Home Depot. I work very hard for my money and really need it. I work full time afternoons and part time days. Just to pay my bills. I can't afford to give a reward but willing do Anything to repay you for returning it. Please! If you found it email me!

Dear Fred,

Thank you for returning my money. Really I can't find the words for the emotions I felt when you called. I truly thought I'd never see that money again. I still have tears in my eyes thinking about it as I write this. I am not a true religious person but I believe in angels. You my friend will be an angel in my heart forever. Thank you Fred! Hugs!
