Working from home on the afternoon of Wednesday, Nov. 7, I received a knock on the door by a gentleman dressed in hunter orange. He asked for my husband, and as I went to respond that my husband, Eric, was up hunting, he proceeded to say, “Here, he may want this,” and handed me my husband’s wallet that he found near cow camp that day and was now returning. Out of shock and excitement, I expressed my gratitude profusely and asked if he had any luck hunting yet. He had not, so I wished him the best of luck and he was off. Thank you, kind sir, for being an all-around good person and fellow sportsman. I trust your act of kindness has brought something your way, and please know that we will be sure to pass your kindness on to the next person.Jennifer IsenhartNew Castle
