Heartbreaking Note From A Five Year Old Boy Sparks Internet Search

in Grab Bag/Life by

Chrissy Marie Wright had her windchime stolen which is not the kind of story that makes international headlines, but this theft came with a twist.

Walking out onto her porch the following morning, Chrissy found this note:

“I am sorry that we stole your windchimes our mom died and liked butterflies so my sister took it and put it by our window. I am sorry this is only money I have please do not be mad at us. – Jake”

Accompanying the note was a crumpled five dollar bill.

Chrissy was not in the least bit angry, and in an attempt to track down the young lad she wrote on her Facebook page:

“Well Jake, I’m not sure who you are, but you can come get your money back sweetie. I had three of those wind chimes you can come back get your money back and have one also so both of you have your own. I am not mad please come over to my house”

Chrissy had walked her Lakewood, Washington neighborhood trying to track them down, feeling an affinity with Jake because she too lost her mother when she was only five years old.

On Thursday, Jake’s aunt posted in the Facebook group revealing that she knew him. Chrissy has been in contact with the family who wishes to remain anonymous right now and she plans to meet them in person soon.
