Hershey Thief

My son Ben and I enjoyed meeting and doing business with many of you fellow enthusiasts.

We were disappointed to discover that some of our items were stolen right off of our table.

To the guy that stole them, I hope you realize that you not only stole from me but also from my 18 year old son, who recently had a Heart transplant and he was selling these items as a way of generating revenue as he is still in recovery and not able to work.

I will pray for you.

I feel the same way James only it is more gratitude than anything else. He was in the PICU in NYC waiting for 6 months, vomiting, massive diarrhea, acid reflux EVERY day! Every minute I have with him alive and smiling is a gift!

God always get gets people like that in the long run. Nothing makes madder then to be stolen from, if you need it that bad ask me and I'll give it to you. I'm always telling my wife Judy if you expect little from people you are seldom disappointed, but I thought we had a better crowd then that. Hopefully the Saint of Timing Belt Failure put him on his to do list, the miserable thief. May you and your son enjoy may days together while the thief's life goes to hell in a P car.

Thanks.

I don't wish any ill will towards this person.

I just pray that he realizes that this was wrong and changes his ways.

That is a sad story, but uplifting that you can be so forgiving and positive. Out of interest what was stolen. Might be worth listing just in case it rings any bells with anyone. Nothing better than a thief getting caught ... if they don't they just keep going.

If they can't afford the parts.
They can't afford the car.
We all know they breakdown
More often then not.
Karma
Your next part car might be his. Wish you the best

What was stolen and what were you asking for it?

RETRACTION!

When I got home from work today I told Ben that I had posted this info on the forums.

He said "I forgot to tell you that I found them".

I said "where and when?"

He said he found them when we were packing up to leave and I was off retrieving the car.

He said he forgot to tell me (ugh).

He said they were under the 968 mini champ display case.

This is really odd because we had the WG plates on the far right side of the table and the 6 car display was on the far left. Somebody, probably a kid as many of them wanted to play with the models, must have put them under there.

Anyway the story had a happy ending.

Please forgive me if I upset anybody over this.
