Missing bench

Gary and his wife, Carroll, were the best of friends with my wife Lou and me.

When our wives died last year, we were heartbroken.

To help with the grieving process, we chose a location on Cottonwood Island Park overlooking the Nechako River to have two memorial benches placed. This a wonderful program run by caring civic workers.

I was in Port Alberni when they were installed but our friend Al sent pictures of Gary sitting on Carroll's bench beside Lou's. I was eagerly looking forward to seeing them and spending time there.

As I rounded the last quarter of the trail, I saw Lou's bench but Carroll's bench was missing. I could hardly believe my eyes. Someone had stolen Carroll's bench. How could anyone be so mean-spirited and cruel?

However, the thief had been seen. It was someone riding a quad towing a cart with a bench on it.

Good citizens of Prince George, help us get Carroll and Gary's bench back.

Thank you.
