To the editor:
Last March, my wife of 60 years passed away. In
June, in order to make our house more convenient for just myself, I
decided to have some of our furniture auctioned off. People always
say not to rush things after a loss of this magnitude, and as it
turned out, there was never a truer statement.
One of the items offered for sale on the 6th of June, was a jewelry
cabinet. I had so many things running through my mind at the time
the furniture was picked up, I neglected to clean the cabinet out.
As a result, I lost much of my wife’s jewelry, some keepsake items
that had been passed down through the family, and many items that I
had made. Some of these “home made” items included necklaces,
turquoise rings, and an ebony ring. Other items included an
anniversary ring, a baroque opal ring, and many other items. As of
right now, I have none of her jewelry, or the family keepsakes to
hold on to as a remembrance.
[to top of second column in this letter]
I have tried a number of times to reach out to the people who bought
this cabinet, have not been able to locate them, and I thought this
would be my last resort. I am hoping that when they read this, they
will do the right thing and return the items to me. If this might be
the case, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at
I will send another Letter to the Editor later to let you know what
happens in this matter.
