Pamela Hedges and her husband Gibb owned a family business for many years until selling it two years ago. They admit they experienced the common problems any business owner faces, including employees stealing money. Recently they say the received a letter from a former employee who confessed that she had stolen money when the register when she worked at the business 15 years ago. Along with an apology, the confession contained a check for $200 as repayment for what she estimated she had taken. When they got the letter, the Hedges said they had never had anyone confess or pay them back after so many years. Neither one remembers this particular employee, but they say they are interested in writing her back. Pamela said,” That was the unbelievable part, never in my wildest dreams would I expect an employee to do something like this.” She said writing back was important, “just to commend her for it, it was a very courageous act.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
