Thanks for lost ID return – four decades later

My name is Kelly Sherman and I work at the North District Operational Center(OCC) in Prince George. My mother , Martha Shepherd from Kamloops is the one that was graciously returned her found/stolen identification. On my mothers behalf, I would like to reach out to (Sgt. Jeff Swann , his wife , office staff , the Park employee and the wonderful community of Ucluelet and thank you from the bottom of her heart. The unbelievable kindness and consideration that was shown simply overwhelmed my mother and our whole family. The gifts, cards and souvenirs that were sent to her were so thoughtful and beautiful. The story in itself is remarkable and yet it just got better. I wish you knew my mother Sgt. Swann, as you could not have found a better recipient for this gift. She is so very kind and giving herself. I hope there is a way to get her appreciation out to your community and please let them know that she wishes to visit there again, hopefully one day. I wish the world had more of these stories, acts of true kindness and love. Thank you from our hearts!
