Good deed put minds at ease

A month ago, my daughter had her purse stolen while we were out for a birthday celebration in White Rock.

I don’t need to talk much about the misery that can create. Aside from missing cash, one worries about credit cards, stolen identities and all the horror stories that go with that.

About three days after the theft, she got a call a from Jeffrey Cook, a First Nations member who, while mowing the newly fenced-in Semiahmoo Park, saw the discarded wallet. Just knowing all that personal information wasn’t floating around in the criminal world was comforting. Jeffrey refused to take a reward for putting our minds at ease, saying he was happy to have helped.

Thank you, Jeffrey Cook.
