We did an earlier piece on a very nice Pleasant Hill family who woke up one morning last week to find the husband’s work truck had been taken by thieves.
Perhaps, we hoped, if we get the word out the Bad Guys will dump the truck and its precious load of work tools and we’ll get a happy ending on this one.
Only, it was not to be, sadly, as we heard from the family Monday after the truck was found, looted and burned out, in unincorporated Martinez:
“They took everything!” said Leila, who immediately adopted a zen-like approach to the situation. “Let’s just hope whoever did it, needed it much more than we did. Thanks again for the good energy!”
We were amazed by this family’s resilience, though the loss could only have affected the husband’s ability to get back on the job. We wish them luck and say we had hoped for a different ending to this story.
