Khalood Bojanowski is overcome with emotions after Good Samaritans returned her lost wallet.

"There are honest people out there. It doesn't happen a lot."

She dropped it in Walmart in Sterling Heights Monday night. Inside was about $70, her ID and credit and debit cards.

She was home when she realized her pink wallet was missing. Just as she was ready to retrace her steps back to the store, a couple pulled up.

"They said, 'Are you Khalood?' I got out of my car and they said, 'We have your wallet.' My heart just sunk."

The couple found the wallet and drove more than an hour to return it Khalood, who lives in Washington Township.

And they had quite a commute home, since they live in Detroit.

"God bless you. I can't believe you drove all the way here. You were so honest. I said people are not like that everyday," she told the couple.  "I hugged them and they hugged me and I gave them gas money.  I couldn't believe they took the time and drove all the way to my home."

Khalood wishes more people were that kind. "Just do the right thing. That's all I ask of people."

The Good Samaritans have now made a new friend. "God bless her and her family.  She will always be in my prayers."

Khalood plans to send the couple a reward to express her gratitude.
