Letter: ‘Thank you’ to the yard sale thief
August 24, 2012
To the editor:
I am writing this letter to thank all who supported our yard sale at 352 Taylor St. last weekend.
My 6 year old son and I worked very hard to help offset the cost of tuition and back to school clothes for him. We appreciate all who came out and supported our efforts.
It is important for us to teach him that nothing in life is free and if you want nice things you must work for them.
I also would like to thank the dark haired lady in the white SUV who Friday night stole my sons red Little Tikes art easel.
He was kind enough to let me borrow it to advertise our yard sale. By stealing this you have taught him a valuable lesson: That not all people do the right things in life and people will steal.
He has learned if it is not yours then you should leave it alone because stealing is wrong and it hurts people.
I truly hope you enjoy my son's easel. My only hope is that you did not steal this for a child.
If you did I hope you do the right thing and tell them you stole it from a 6-year-old.
Otherwise you will be a liar and a thief.
Also I have the description of your car make/model because someone saw you take it. As soon as we figure out who exactly you are, I will send the police over to “thank you” too.
In the meantime, we will pray for you.
