FORT SMITH (KFSM) - An unnamed good Samaritan in Fort Smith found a man's lost heirloom wallet and returned it to him anonymously via the mail.

Tom Cook was admitted to Sparks Regional Medical Center with a life threatening issue and released on Thursday (Oct. 23). Between his room and the parking lot he lost his wallet, according to Cook.

The wallet is special because it was left to him by his grandfather before he died, Cook said.

Upset, Cook filed a police report and called hospital security three times every day, he said.

On Monday evening (Oct. 27), he received a package in the mail that held his wallet, along with the note (pictured below).

The letter reads, "I'm sorry you lost your wallet. I found it in the parking lot of Sparks Hospital. I sure meant to turn it in at the desk, but I totally forgot. I'm sorry for that also. I live over two hours away, so, I thought I should mail it. God bless you sir."

The letter goes on to say that the wallet cost $5.90 to ship, and the sender didn't have that money, so, they had to take it out of the wallet.
