Martin grieves over stolen Bible
She wants thieves to keep Bible, but return poems
Donna Martin holds a picture she cherishes of her and her mother.
When thieves broke into Donna Martin’s van, they stole more than just Christmas gifts. They took something irreplaceable.“I woke up Wednesday morning to find that during the night my van had been broken into and some gifts were taken, but the most precious and treasured gift of all was they took my Bible,” Martin said, noting the vehicular burglary was one of two that happened on Peers Street that night. Martin said she left her doors unlocked in the normally quiet neighborhood.“Just the Bible itself is a treasure, but inside of it I had poems my mother wrote,” said Martin.
