A woman in Washington State is sharing a heartbreaking apology note left on her door by a young boy.
Chrissy Marie Reitz posted a photo of the note and a $5 bill that was left with it on her Facebook page last Friday. The note reads: “I am sorry that we stold [sic] your windchime our mom died and liked butterflies so my sister took it to put it by our window I am sorry this is only money I have please do not be mad at us. Jake.”
Reitz added that she certainly wasn’t mad at Jake for taking her windchime and she even offered for Jake to come back so that she can return his money and give him another windchime for his sister. “Well Jake, I not sure who you are but you can come get your money back sweetie. I had 3 of those windchimes,” she wrote.
In a separate post on Facebook, Reitz shared that she lost her own mom when she was only 5-years-old, and if she finds Jake, she will “give him his money without embarrassing or scaring him.”
Reitz said she asked her property manager who owns other houses in the area if she knew anyone by the name of Jake, but she didn’t. She also said there are several schools in the area and a bus stop right in front of her house.
“That little butterfly apparently meant a lot to him and his little sister and he did try to do the right thing so I forgive him,” Reitz said. Reitz even decided to set up a special Facebook page dedicated to finding Jake and posting updates. You can visit Jake’s Butterfly by clicking here.
