I came across an interesting article today in our local paper, the Orange County Register:
FULLERTON – Insurance agent Henry Jones, whose car was stolen Sunday in front of his downtown office, has posted a $1,500 reward. Not so much for the car, but for the safe return of a beloved Bible he shared with his wifethe couple shared.
Jones said it's not the loss of his 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid that's disconcerting.
"It means the world to me," Jones said of the Bible he and his late wife, Vi, read together during their married life and on trips around the world.
His wife died Aug. 31 after a seven-year battle with cancer.
Jones said the well-worn Bible has been on the pulpit in Methodist founder's John Wesley's Chapel in London, inside the New Room, the Methodist faith's oldest house in Bristol, England, in the Vatican and on world cruises."

I hope his Bible is recovered!
