Once upon a time Joe was given a good violin by a friend (Willy) who had arthritis. Joe knew that
Willy would be happy if the violin were used in church events.
Joe had a relative (Sam) who was very active in church and had some violin training. Sam was glad to take the violin and everybody was happy.
But Sam never reached a performance level.
The violin sat in the cellar for years until one day it was discovered with the bottom plate open.
Repair costs ran $700 which Sam paid.
Sam has offered to give the violin back to Joe but what about the $700? Should Joe have to reimburse Sam?
