Wolf statue missing from island property

It was brought to the island by my father-in-law as a housewarming gift for his wife.

If you’ve regularly driven on Cemetery Road near Beall Road in the past year, you may have noticed the pair of wolf statues marking the front of one the driveways. If you’ve driven there recently, you may have noticed one of the wolves is missing. That’s because it’s been stolen.

I’m aware that it was likely taken by someone from off-island and that’s that. But just in case someone knows where it is, I’d like to tell you a little bit about that wolf. It was brought to the island about a year ago by my father-in-law, Jerry, as a housewarming gift for his wife, Dollie, for their new home on Vashon Island. The couple has a pair of wolves just like the island pair at their home in Omak, where Jerry is currently living as he battles a terminal disease. The wolves mean a great deal to them.

The theft of that wolf has been upsetting for Jerry and Dollie, and while it may seem like a small loss to some, I assure you it’s more than that. I realize it’s a long shot, but if that wolf makes its way back home in the middle of the night, the same way it disappeared, it would go a long way in helping Jerry and Dollie feel better about things. Thank you.
