WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A small bag of cremated remains labeled "Grandma" that a customer left at a Wichita liquor store has been claimed.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/16lnd4c ) Kathy Leonard retrieved the bag Thursday after hearing about efforts by Charlie Nguyen (wihn) to find the owner.

Leonard says the ashes are those of her mother, Helen Dapron, who died in Arizona in 2010. She says she gave her three children small portions of the remains in plastic bags.

She believes her son was carrying the bag in a pocket and put it on the counter at Charlie's Liquor and Smoke Shop while pulling out money for a purchase.

Leonard said she'll be keeping the ashes for now and will talk to her son about being more respectful with his grandma's ashes.
