“It's been 20 years, but I still carry great remorse. I am very sorry that I stole from you. Please accept my apology + this money as a repayment + 20 years of interest. May God forever bless you+ your family.”
Flores told KVOA the letter deeply moved her and her employees.
“Some of my managers read the letter and they actually had tears in their eyes because they know that there’s very long days and food has a very little profit margin on it,” said Flores.
She told KVOA the letter has lifted her spirits.
"I don't know where she's at, or who she is, but I will tell you one thing -- I hope that she's read or has seen what an impact this has made not only on me, my family, my business, but where it will go in the future," Flores said. "I hope she keeps looking to see what we're doing with it."
