    The GRPD have been doing an amazing job of follow up with regard to this incident. It was my mom’s purse he took…she is 90 years old! I believe in forgiveness and I hope whatever he got (wasn’t a lot; mom’s on a fixed income) he truly needed but wonder…would he want his own mom, or grandma, or aunt, sister or daughter to be hurt in this way? What would he want to say to the person who would do that to his family?
