My mom is going through alot of old paperwork, shredding what is not applicable.

Here's a letter she found showing how much integrity my dad had.

Dear Sir:

On Friday, March 9, I received a letter that $20.00 had been deposited in my bank account in the <bank name> from the Department of Agriculture. I immediately phoned and informed you that I sold the land in Delta County to the <my aunt> estate in 2006. Enclosed is a check for$20.00 to cover the money deposited in my account that I should not have received.

Yours Truly

They don't make men like my dad anymore....it was just 20 bucks...but he needed to make it right.

Integrity is a rare quality, both then and now.
I'm of two minds about it. One cynical and one idealistic.
But still, in this context, I suspect I'd just agree with you and take a pull of my imaginary beer.

Sounds like a good man. Not many have that kind of integrity.

awareness of one's failings is somewhat commendable

what's 20$? try returning 3000$ when you expect a check for 300\$...which is what happened in my family, than we will talk about honor.
