A Levittown man is seeking the public's help in finding a memorial stone in memory of his deceased wife, which was stolen from his front lawn earlier this month.
The memorial was stolen from a front lawn on Wood Lane in Levittown, located off of Gardiners Avenue, on July 5, between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. The stone commemorates the woman, who passed away from cancer in April 2011.
The homeowner, John, said he did not report the incident to police because he didn't think they would be helpful in finding it, and while he said he has an idea who took it, he added that he can't prove it. He said his neighbors didn't see anything either.
John said he went to take his friend to the airport at 7 a.m. and when he returned in the early afternoon, the stone was gone, and he couldn't believe his eyes.
"I had to take another look," he said.
The man is distraught over the loss of the memorial, which he says he prayed in front of every day.
"When I went there every night, her spirit was there," he said.
Signs asking for help in finding the memorial were placed at a deli in the Gardiners Ave. Plaza, on a stop sign in front of the post office and outside of King Kullen.
