This letter is to the person who stole the bronze vases from Memorial Park Cemetery.

I would like to tell you about one of the people you stole from. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He worked until the day he died to provide for his family. This theft did not hurt him because I know he is walking streets of gold.

You hurt the families; you stole from a baby. Do you know the hurt these parents have already endured, then to find out they could not even put flowers on the grave at Christmas?

I will pray for your soul but I would like to see you polish every marker you stole from on a hot July day.
