To the Editor,
Two cobalt blue ceramic planters filled with perennials were stolen from the graves of Darold and Helen Maricle at the Spring Valley Cemetery. We have mixed emotions:
• Anger, that someone (who undoubtedly considers themselves Christian) would rob a gravesite;
• Pity, for whoever would stoop so low to such an act;
• And even a little pride, that someone thought the floral arrangements were pretty enough to steal.
The theft has been reported to the Fillmore County Sheriff. We will keep a lookout for the planters. If they turn up elsewhere in the cemetery, we will reclaim them and let the sheriff know where we found them.
Or, you can save yourself a lot of hassle and return them to the gravesite, no questions asked.
