Lost purse doesn't ruin vacation

To the editor:

I am 11 years old. A few weeks ago, my family and I went on a vacation to St. Louis. Coming home, we stopped in Cape Girardeau and ate at Red Lobster. I left my purse. There was $121.61 and a camera in it. I didn't even know where I had left my purse until a few nights later. A woman from Red Lobster called my house and said she would mail it to me. I was so shocked when I got it and everything was in it. Everyone at Red Lobster was really nice, and everyone in Missouri was too. This was my best vacation ever. The next time we come through Cape Girardeau, I hope we have more time to visit your town.
