Help me return Bible to proper owner

As Yogi Berra once said, it’s “déja vu all over again.”

For the second time, I have found among my dead father’s possessions a Bible. This one, a pocket size edition of The New Testament, belongs to “Mrs. W. B. Shields (Pearl), 1825 Wheeler Drive, Natchez, Tel. 5605.”

If there is any relative of Wheeler interested in having this Bible, I will gladly mail it to that person.

Having now chanced upon two Bibles belonging to others among items left to me at my father’s, Ernest Joe Carroll, death, I do anticipate a father-daughter reconciliation in heaven, at a much later date, during which I definitely plan to ask daddy how he came by these Bibles.

Incidentally, after The Democrat printed my letter regarding the first Bible, I was contacted by a relative of the Bible’s owner. The Bible was sent to her via USPS certified return receipt mail, signed for and claimed, but the relative never gave me the courtesy of a “thank you.” I pray she has taken time to read that Bible and to give her Southern manners a nudge.

If you have an interest in, and would like to have, Mrs. Shields’ Bible, please contact me by phone at 661-256-3727 or by mail at 3705 Via Cardelina, Palos Verdes Estates, Ca., 90274.

Thanking you sincerely and wishing you peace and love.
