What could have ruined Christmas for a local business owner, turned out to be a Christmas moment she'll never forget.
Sacred Heart Gifts on South Hydraulic was broken into on Saturday. The owner tells us between the damage and the items stolen, she lost about $2,000.
Monday, she says Bill Warren of Warren Theaters came into her store and gave her an envelope with $1,000 inside.
"It's a wonderful community and I want to thank Mr. Warren he really came through and he really blessed my family,” Sheri Ramirez said.
We spoke with Bill Warren by phone Monday. He told us he stopped by Ramirez's store after seeing her story on KAKE News.
“You know I just think any of us as human beings, we need to do something nice for one of our fellow human beings. Whether we know them or not,” Bill Warren said.
