A heartless thief caught on camera stealing a holiday package from the front door of a New Jersey home pilfered an irreplaceable memento intended for the family of a young Army soldier who died last year.
Karen Delmonaco, of Edison, tells WABC that the box stolen from in front of her home contained custom-made memory quilts sewn together with 90 pieces of shirts belonging to her son Robert, who was serving in the Army as a 2nd Lieutenant with Alpha Troop 1-102nd Cavalry N.J. Army National Guard when he died in October 2014 at age 21.
The quilts were intended as Christmas gifts for Robert Delmonaco’s siblings and his father, the station reported.
“I was waiting for them for a while. I got the confirmation that they were there. I came home, they were gone,” Karen Delmonaco said. "I just want them back; that's all we have really are his memories and some of his things."
