LAKEWOOD, Wash. – A woman is searching for a young boy who left a heartbreaking note and $5 on her doorstep.
Chrissy Marie lives in Pierce County in Washington state. On her Facebook page, she posted the note she found at her door along with a plea to help find the young man who left it.
“I am sorry that we stole your windchimes,” the note reads. “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.”
The note was signed “Jake.”
Marie said she wants to find Jake to return his $5. She told KCPQ that she lost her own mother when she was just 5 years old.
“Well Jake, I’m not sure who you are but you can come get your money back sweetie,” Marie wrote on Facebook. “I had 3 of those windchimes. You can come back and get your money back and have 1 also so both of you can have your own. I am not mad.”
She posted the note to Facebook Friday, and it has been shared more than 400 times since.
