CHOCTAW, Oklahoma -

One Choctaw woman thanked God for all that the May 2013 tornado outbreak gave to her.

Kellye Cloud had her purse stolen at a Walmart more than four years ago. The weekend after the May 19 and 20 tornadoes, she received a call that the same purse had been found in the tornado debris near Little Axe.

"She went on to tell me they were looking through the wallet and everything was outdated by two years. I said ‘that's because it's been missing for four," Cloud said.

The purse still had pretty much everything inside with the exception of Cloud's checkbook.

Also in the purse was Kellye's old cell phone which was still had enough power to turn on. The phone contained text messages from Cloud's husband who passed away from cancer weeks before the purse was taken in 2008.

"He was my soul mate. There won't be another Frank," Cloud said.

Cloud got another charger for the phone and plans to keep it as a reminder of her husband.

"I can't attribute it to anything but an act of God," Cloud said.
