My son was young, maybe 14 and on one of our ethereally special summer trips to Canton Ohio to visit our Grandma Rose; she helped him pick out this very special pocket knife. It was in a very cool, old Amish country hardware and it’s been in his pocket since then, he is now 36!! GREAT SENTIMENTAL VALUE for OVER 20 YEARS! Our sweet Grandma Rose passed from our earth 14 years ago(she was 94). Wonder what she’d think of someone who felt they just “deserved” to have something special that was only ever intended to be special for her grandson and to just TAKE it with no thought of turning it in! Who are you? I invite you to look at the karmic effects of stealing,(just google it) it’s not pretty and it’s stealing a knife for heavens sake!! A DEADLY weapon!
Odd thing, our signs we had posted around town trying to scare it up were taken down asap? mmhh
My son was visiting here from Ontario and was just sick having to go home without it. He lives in a huge place compared to Salt Spring ( where you might be leary of theft) and being a relative newcomer myself on the island he’d heard over and over how wonderful a place and how honest and kind it is (?) How about the black boots taken from the fitness club? the jewels taken from someones home? A childs new shoes from the pool? (these are all in just the past while) There are some light fingers amongst us right now and only you know who you are. Do the RIGHT thing people……always. Teach your kids to do the same.
A cherished and very sentimental folding pocket-knife was lost today (Monday, March 18) at Rainbow road aquatics center in the male change room around 330-4pm. This knife was from a very important person to me, who is now passed away.
I accidently dropped it on the floor as I was changing back into my clothes, it was on the left hand side of the room by the pull-out bin-lockers, I terribly regret not picking it up immediately, my mind was a little pre-occupied, I went to comb my hair and straighten my shirt, etc. when I came back to my stuff, I think it was gone (as I did a final sweeping glance to make sure I had not left anything). I noticed it missing about 30-45 minutes later and went straight back, but it was for sure gone at that point.
Two young boys (maybe 10-12 yrs?) were in the change room while I was in there, and so unfortunately, I question now whether a possible dangerous weapon could be in the hands of someone who does not know how to be safe with something as such.
I am asking anyone who might have found it, or any parents that know their children were there at that time, to please, please do the right thing and get in touch with me, there will be no questions asked and I am offering a reward for it’s return.
I have included a picture that is similar to it, but not quite the same, my blade was plain. Handle a little different too.
Please good people of Salt Spring Island, I am asking for your help.
Thank you, Derek Lyons, number in Ontario, 705-716-3855
