Letters to the editor...Purse thief stole a treasured rosary

Full Text

Dear editor, This letter is directed to the person or persons who picked up my black backpack purse at the eating area of the Georgetown Market Place about 2:15 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3. Needless to say, I will survive without the approximately $150 which was in the purse, however, it is causing me much anxiety as I have to arrange replacements for my various cards (ie. driver's licence, social insurance etc.). Normally I don't carry much cash but that day I made a withdrawal because I planned on giving my granddaughter some cash for her birthday to use on a school trip to Boston. My purse also contained my cell phone and other personal things which cannot be replaced. The most important of these were my black rosary beads given to me by my father (they were his) 44 years ago on the day I left my home in Newfoundland to come to Ontario. This rosary has never been out of my purse for 44 years and although I have others, this is the one I used daily in memory of my dad, especially since he passed away 12 years ago. No doubt you needed the money badly in order to do such a thing but perhaps you could have turned the purse in to mall security or at least placed it where it might have been found by a more honest person. If, by chance, you still have my purse and its contents, I would be very happy if, at least, the rosary could be returned to me. I will be glad to pay the postage if you just address it to me (all the information is in the purse) and drop it in a mailbox. Mary C. Blackmore, Georgetown
