Found by honest people

Recently I helped with the fireworks during the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival. We offloaded supplies on the dock and then joined family members and friends for a get-together at the lighthouse. During the evening, I had mentioned to my friends that my cell phone was missing and I figured it would turn up in a box or a vehicle the next day. The next morning, my wife had answered a call at about 8:30 from a gentleman named, Rick. He and his wife, Glenda, take walks in Mukilteo on a regular basis and on this morning he said they saw an unusual item at the end of the public boat launch. He said he knew it was a cell phone and figured it was broken, but when he picked it up it was working. After scrolling through the numbers he found the one marked “home.” That’s when he reached my wife and she gave me his address in Silver Lake.

Thank you Rick and Glenda. It’s nice to see there are still honest and kind people out there.
