I am wriing to compliment Lt. Coby Fincher.
On Monday, December 20th, we had stopped for the evening in Gainesville, on our trip from Lake Worth to Northwest Arkansas. We were moving my 86 year old mother up to Arkansas to live with us, and were travelling with her car in tow, and with many of her worldly possessions tightly packed into our two vehicles.
At the motel, we realized that she did not have her purse. We had had two stops in the recent past, one at a gas station in Volusia County, and at a rest stop south of Gainesville on I 75 N. We had convinced ourselves that the purse had been left at the gas station, and located and called there. No purse--we were sure it had been stolen.
The next morning Lt. Fincher called me on my car phone and notified us that the purse had been left in the handicapped stall of the rest stop, and had been returned to him. Our joy was great! He gave us information on how to obtain a notarized statement to send to have the purse sent back to us.
We are going out today to get the statement.
We want you to know how pleased we are with Lt. Fincher's going to the trouble to track us down, and to contact us on the road, to put our minds at rest. It is a wonderful thing to know that we have gentlemen like him working for our welfare.
