Their view: Angel theft saddens Portales woman
Bess Jones of Portales said she’s not angry, just hurt by the recent theft of a small guardian angel statue from her husband’s gravesite.
“It had a beautiful expression, just looking down on him, taking care of him,” she said. “It gave me a lot of comfort.”
She did not call police, but wanted to share her thoughts publicly with those responsible for the angel’s disappearance.
“To the person who lifted the guardian angel from the gravestone of my husband, Rannell Jones, in the United Daughters of the Confederacy Circle of the Portales cemetery:
“I know you had a greater need than I did and I pray that it blesses you as it has our family the last 4 1/2 years.”
