Dear Salt Springers;
A couple weeks ago we wrote a post, turning to the community to see if anyone might have any information about a case of heirloom jewelry that went missing from our home. The case is still missing, and we’re continuing to hope for its return, but that’s not why we’re writing today.
In that letter, we indicated that the case had likely disappeared during the course of renovations to our home. Though we made it clear that we bear no malice to whoever might have taken it, it has come to our attention that some of the tradespeople who worked on our home feel that they have been implicated in the theft.
We want to make it absolutely clear that, by and large, the people who worked on our home worked tirelessly to help make our house into a home. They acted with full honesty and integrity.
We want to express our sincere regret to the good people who worked on our home for any suspicion they feel our letter may have cast upon them. We are sincerely and deeply sorry for any embarrassment or hurt this may have caused them.
With love and blessings,
Joselyn and Will
