Honest Employee at WalMart Makes My Day!

I was shopping today at the WalMart store in Fallon, NV. I had with me my two children, ages 1 and 4. I was planning on using a WIC voucher, so I had the voucher and my WIC ID folder with me, also. During the time that I was shopping, my ID folder and voucher fell out of my pocket. I did not notice until I was ready to check out. I quickly retraced all my steps and was not able to locate my folder. On a last-ditch effort, I went to Customer Service to see if anyone had turned it in. To tell you the truth, I was not expecting anyone to turn it in. In this day and age when the price of groceries is going up and up, finding a voucher AND the folder is like finding $20 on the floor.
As I neared the Customer Service desk, I noticed a long line. I offered up a quick prayer to have my things returned to me, and took my place in line.
No sooner had I finished praying than a gentlemen pushing what appeared to be a janitorial cart came up next to me and on top of his cart was my WIC folder! I asked if I could see it and saw that it was mine. I offered him my driver's liscense so he could see that I was not trying to scam him. He checked and then asked me to check to see if my voucher was still inside. It was!! I thanked him repeatedly and went to check out.
I regret that I was so thrilled and amazed to find everything so quickly that I didn't get a good look at his name tag. I believe his name was Eli, but I could be mistaken and apologize if I am!
I just want to be sure that you are made aware that you have a very honest man working in your store and I want to make sure that he receives whatever recognition is offered at the store to show appreciation for his integrity.
I, and my family, thank him again for doing the right thing!
