    That's a crying dang shame, I only hope and pray you catch the low down crooks that did this. A friend of mine several years ago had their smoker stolen so I know what it's like. And for some one to steal from you trying to raise money for your father in law makes it even worse in my book. To bad it's not back in the day when hung horse thieves, because this is just as bad in my book. But think of it this way, "God will take care of Them," in the end.
