Patty Wesner and state Trooper Kevin Saunders pose with some of the money that Wesner collected and guarded after it fell out of the back of a Brink’s truck onto a rural roadway. Wesner said this week that Saunders told her, “I can’t believe you called us.”
continued Also, Toti heard that Wesner was going to receive a reward from Brink’s Inc. for her honesty, and she had plans of donating it to the Pember Library & Museum in Granville.
“Her donation of the reward was even more amazing, so I made a contribution of $100 to the library,” he said.
Apparently others nationally share Toti’s feelings about Wesner and her honesty. Pember Library & Museum, where Wesner is Executive Director, has received more than $800 in donations from people all over all over the U.S., Wesner said this week.
She’s been interviewed by leading U.S. newspapers and one in England, and was named “Person of the Day” by the Huffington Post.
Regardless of all the publicity — which included network television coverage, Wesner is thoughtful, humble and is a true Good Samaritan, Toti said.
“She sent us a beautiful thank you card,” Toti said. “She’s one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met.”
Thursday, Wesner returned the compliment.
“Krystal and their employees — they are the best!” she said. “They were so sweet.”
