Light snuffed out

A solar light was stolen from a memorial near the ferry dock in Port McNeill

Dear Editor,

What is a person’s integrity worth?

Our family wanted to honour and remember the birthday of one of our own with a small memorial at the bench standing in her memory, just east of the ferry dock in Port McNeill. To us she was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law and auntie who not long ago succumbed to cancer.

Among several bouquets of flowers family and friends left at the bench, I placed a solar light in the form of a crystal rose. I purchased it for $8.49.

Less than twelve hours later, the light had disappeared.

I would like to ask the person who took the light if the memory of our cherished angel was really worth $8.49 to you?
