We left separately. Next day "the woman" phoned and asked if we remembered seeing her purse/backpack. Unfortunately, we did not. She phoned The Empire and left a message asking if her purse had been turned in.
We ran into "the man" at the grocery store on Saturday. He told us her purse was turned in and most contents (including money, credit cards and cell phone) were intact. The only item missing was her cigarettes. We decided it was a sign she should quit smoking!
Here's a "shout out" to whoever turned in her purse. Good people exist in the world still.
