Bible story very heartwarming

EDITOR:

I wanted to comment on the wonderful article Mike Roberts wrote on the return of the Castile family’s 127-year-old presentation Bible. It was fascinating and heartwarming to read the story of it’s journey home.

Being in the hobby of genealogy myself, it just made me marvel at the work and dedication that Mr. Thomas did in returning this treasure to its rightful owner. And I give thanks that Mr. Ferraro had the instinct to find the people who would make this happen.

Hopefully, your article will get people interested in locating and preserving their own family Bibles and other histories.  Time is running out for many of our older generations and getting their stories and memorabilia is critical for the preservation of these items.
