Grateful to man who found wallet

I would appreciate it if you could print a thank you letter to the kind man who drove to my house on Saturday to return my wallet that he had found in the road.

Unfortunately, my mother was so worried about why it was in the road and not with me and quickly phoned me that she forgot to ask the man for his phone number.

I would have very much liked to have phoned him to thank him in person.

I had put it on my car roof for a moment but had driven off and forgotten that it was there.

When I remembered, I pulled over but it was gone.

I was dreading having to replace my driving licence and cards and tried to re-trace my steps but with no luck.

This kind man found my address inside and drove all the way to my house to return it.

It was incredibly kind of him and I am very grateful to him. A great big thank you from myself and from my mum.
