Letter to Editor: ANGEL STOLEN FROM GRAVE
Friday, August 27, 2010
My name is Elizabeth Joyner (nee Wunder), and I am writing this letter cause I am really shocked.
My mother, Elizabeth Frances Wunder (nee Fuhlbrick), was born and lived her whole life in Gloucester City. She died on September 20, 2009, and was buried at St. Mary's Cemetery -- in the crypt (I-E-54) where the Virgin Mary watches over her.
My sister bought a silver angel from all of us and took it out to the grave. She put the angel under the bench that sits in front of the Virgin Mary.
She thought it would be okay there, as someone else had put something under the other bench for his or her loved one – and it had been there for almost a year.
But, we were wrong. I was shocked to find that someone would take something from a grave. I was so shocked that all I could think is: How could anyone do this?
How would they feel if this was for their mother?
Whoever took the angel broke one of God's rules, and one day will have to answer to God.
So, whoever has it, please return it back where it was under the bench in front of the Virgin Mary on (I-E-54), or to the office, with no questions asked.
I am very upset by all of this.
Elizabeth Joyner (nee Wunder), Gloucester City
