When a South Carolina couple recently sold what had been their ‘dream home’, they were sure they had tied up all the loose ends before the sale.
The repairs had been made, all the paperwork was in order, and their belongings had been removed from the house they had spent the last 32 years in, or so they thought.
A few days after the sale ended, James and Clarrisa Munford discovered a literal treasure, which the former owners had completely hidden and forgotten: 50 gold and silver coins.
Legally, the coins, valued at $ 15,000, were now owned by the Munfords, and they had the right to quietly sell them and keep the proceeds.
However, the Munfords, owners of Clarrisa’s Kitchen and Catering in Columbia, chose to contact the vendors and return the coins, which had been left in a built-in drawer in the house.
“There is an old saying: ‘You reap what you sow,’” said the original owner, who was in awe. “My wife and I put a lot of time and effort into making sure we left our home in excellent condition for the Munfords, and one good deed was certainly returned by another!”
The home sellers in Irmo prefer to remain anonymous, but said they wanted to share this story to bring hope and inspiration to others during these difficult and divisive times.
“Now is a good time to pause and reflect on how we treat each other. If there were more people like the Munfords, this world would be a much better place. “He said.
