Letter to the Editor

Reader offers passionate plea

To the Editor:

I had my purple leather purse taken out of my car Saturday, April 20.

It is a burgundy mountaineer. There were irreplaceable pictures in there that I can't replace.

You see, my son Joshua Barnett got hit on his motorcycle and he passed away Nov. 25, 2011. I had his wallet with his last ID in it. I had a 5-by-7 photo album in it.

It was blue with all his pictures in it and in my wallet, I had pictures of him when he was little.

I can't replace these things and the hurt I'm feeling is never ending.

So to whoever took my purse out of my vehicle, please just return these things that I can't replace.

I was at the Farmer's Market on United States 40, parked behind Harris Bank, from 9:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m.

I went to the Seelyville Town Hall from 1:50-3:50 p.m., and back to the Brazil Walmart from 6-6:20 p.m.

Please to whoever you are, return these things without any questions asked. I will offer a reward if these items are returned safely.

Please; it this was you and your son had gotten killed and these were what you had of him, how would you feel in your heart if someone took them from you?

Please return.

Shannon Skipo,
