    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

    <My Dad>

    They don't make men like my dad 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.

    i could have returned the $20 too
    if it was $20,000,000, i would be in s.america
    at least, i would like to think i'd have the balls to abscond and run

    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.
