An unidentified man recently returned to the Nashville store he robbed 11 years ago to deliver a hand-written note as well as $400 cash to replace the money he stole — with interest.
The owner of the InterAsian Market & Deli, Keosavanh Xayarath, remembers being robbed at gunpoint over a decade ago like it was yesterday.
The man and his son, Somboon Wu, were caught off guard when a mysterious man recently entered the store and insisted they accept an envelope marked “Owner.” The man reportedly told them that the delivery was very important because it contained money.The letter read in part:
“I do not use drugs anymore and I feal [sic] I must make amends to the people I have hurt in the past…I hope you will accept this money and find forgiveness…Anonymous”
Wu said, “If he’s watching, wherever life takes you, just know that we, we forgive you for what you did.”
The family also posted the letter on their store’s social media accounts to make sure the former drug-using robber knows he is forgiven.
