It was a dry, arid day yet the note was ink stained and worn.  Had Monica read it, cried and held on to it for solace, only to lose it in a parking lot? I did a visual scan of the parking area and saw no one coming out of the grocery store or going in that looked as though they lost something important.  As I walked towards the store, I began to wonder what Monica had done that needed forgiving.  Did she offend a family member?
