When Howard Kirby found more than $43,000 in a couch he bought at a secondhand store, he knew he couldn’t keep it.
But, for a time, he sure thought about it.
"I know how it is to lose something and never get it back," Kirby said after returning the money.
Kirby purchased $70 of furniture from a Habitat for Humanity ReStore location in central Michigan.
But after a few weeks, one of the cushions didn’t feel comfortable.
Kirby’s daughter-in-law agreed with him, so she looked for an answer.
"She opens it up and pulls it out and she says, 'Dad, money,’" he said.
