Search for a missing cane
I can’t believe someone would steal a cane from a handicapped person, but it is true. After shopping recently, my husband left his cane in a shopping cart in the parking lot. Driving home, he asked me to see if the cane was behind the seat, where he usually put it.
It was not, so we turned the pickup around and headed back to the parking lot. We found the cart, but the cane was missing. I went in the store and asked if anyone had turned in a wooden cane with black tape on the handle — a cane that had once belonged to my beloved late mother. I was told no one had turned it in. I checked the aisles but did not find it. I asked the workers in charge of the carts if they happened to see a cane. They said no.
To whomever stole it, I hope you and your conscience will have a Merry Christmas. My husband, who is 85, won’t, without the use of his sturdy cane that allows him to walk since his knees rub bone-on-bone. Margaret Seiders-Metz, Burbank
