To the Editor:
Around May 25 or 26th a precious bundle of tools went missing from the garage of Donna and Gary Copan of 7 Redwood Drive, Yorkton.
After more than sixty years of residency in Yorkton, Donna and Gary were in the midst of packing, bundling and auctioning most of their household belongings in preparation for their move to British Columbia.
Therefore, it is reasonable to believe that this precious bundle may have inadvertently gone with auctioned items.
Equally as possible, this precious bundle may have appeared abandoned and thus, up for grabs.
The bundle was never meant to be anywhere nor with anyone but Gary Copan.
The precious bundle contained tools from Gary's late father, Gordon Copan. The bundle contained tools given as gifts to Gary from his late son, Derek Copan and the bundle contained a power cord that would likely seem old and obsolete to others, but was in fact the only remaining article left to Gary from his late father-in-law.
This bundle was filled with what may appear to be an assortment of old and new tools -- but what was really contained in that bundle was enormous love.
For obvious sentimental reasons, the return of any or all of the contents of the lost precious bundle is of the utmost importance to Gary Copan and his family.
Gary's heart needs the return of these items far more than anyone else could need them in their workshop.
If you purchased the tools in the auction, please advise us. We will reimburse you for your costs. If you inadvertently picked-up the bundle thinking it was abandoned, we know that would have been easily done. But it means so much to us to get these back -- please, please return the items.
Please contact Barb at 306-782-4226 if you have an information about these tools.
