Dear Editor,

This letter is written to the coward who entered our home and stole the following pieces of jewelry - jewelry to you - but to my wife, they were her precious memories: A mother and fathers wedding rings, a mothers ring with three birthstones and a mother-in-law's wedding ring set (suppose to go to a daughter), a Mother's Day necklace saying "World's Greatest Mom," years and years of earrings from a loving husband with Luekemia, a locket from a father to his daughter for graduation in 1956, a gold cross given years ago to help her through some hard times, and so much more. Fifty-seven years of memories you stole from her. I hope your parents never know what you have done-they would be so ashamed of you. I know that you have no conscience so this letter will not get to you. Cowards like you think that people who trust and forget to lock their front door for two hours, deserve to lose their lifetime of precious memories.

Well maybe some day you will lose something precious to you. I hope that it will not hurt as bad as you have hurt my loving wife. This note cannot describe all the memories that you have taken from her. She will lose sleep every night while you, I know, will sleep well, but at least I have gotten this off my chest.

Floyd Ingersoll,
