Keep the money; give us our documents back


To The Editor:

My wife and I were recently robbed. We lost our life’s savings: $6,600. and all of the important documents in our lives; the abstract to our home, marriage license, titles to our cars, diplomas from schools, birth certificates, everything. It all disappeared in one plastic box locked as a safe sitting our in our shop/garage. I was stupid to leave that stuff out there, and I am sorry I did.

Whoever took all of that is off the hook. They will never be prosecuted or charged with any crime for what they did, if they will just return the documents. They can have the money. I only hope and pray that they used it for some good purpose: give some children a wonderful Christmas, pay some utilities so they can stay warm, eat some good food for a change, or better yet, promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I only hope and pray they didn’t smoke, snort, or shoot it up. Because, if they did, it is now in the wrong hands, and they have nothing to show for it but a stronger addiction.

In any case, no one will care if the documents can all be returned. Keep and enjoy the money. We consider it a donation, hopefully to a good cause. Please leave the documents on our back porch or in front of the garage door, or anywhere they will be spotted. They are of no use to whomever took them.

It doesn’t matter if you are seen returning them or not. Nothing will come of it. You have our word. If you are so afraid that you will be seen, then return them in the middle of the night. I really don’t care.

I promise that the return of these documents will be considered an act of contrition, and no one will be prosecuted who is contrite.

Thank you.

Bob Brody
