Restaurant Owner Receives Unexpected Envelope Filled With Money And A Letter From A Former Employee ❤️

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

The owner of Tucson's El Charro restaurant, Carlotta Flores, wasn't having a good week. She'd had her purse stolen and her faith in humanity was waning, but then an unexpected surprise in the mail renewed her faith—and put a substantial amount of cash in her pocket.

Flores received a letter in the mail from an anonymous person who claimed to have worked in the restaurant 20 years ago. In the letter, the woman wrote that she was a terrible waitress and was fired, but before that, she had been stealing from her employer. To make up the amount she stole, plus a lot of interest, the person enclosed $1,000. 

In the letter the former waitress wrote:

One of the waiters I worked with had encouraged me to 'forget' to ring in a few drinks a shift and pocket the cash. And for some stupid reason, I did it. I grew up in the church, I knew better. I hadn't stolen a dime before then, nor have I since. It's been 20 years, but I still carry great remorse. I am very sorry that I stole from you. Please accept my apology + this money as a repayment + 20 years of interest. May God forever bless you+ your family.

Flores told CNN about the letter:

I don't know where she's at or who she is but I will tell you one thing. I hope that she's read or has seen what an impact this has made not only on me, my family, my business but where it will go in the future so I hope she keeps looking to see what we're doing with it.
