    This has to be one of the saddest things I have read in a long time. A family that lost a son. A thief that has no regard for the law. Last precious memories that a set of parents have of their child. This is the result of our over tolerant justice system.

    To the parents: I am so sorry for your loss. More so, I hope somewhere, somehow, the person responsible for this has one grain of decency in their being, and returns your property or sees a way to send it electronically, or save it to a disc or thumb drive and just mail it to you. They could find a million ways to give back what they took.

    Please update the public if it is returned. I would like to know there is some humanity left.

      You hit it on the head. I am willing to bet the thief in this case has a long criminal record and probably should have been in jail.

    You can do so anonymously but please, please, PLEASE return what you have taken. Hugo’s family has been through enough. Take heart and give them these memories back.

    This is sad beyond words!
    Nowadays with digital photos this can happen all too easy and its something most never really think about. Not really comparable but I lost all my sons baby pics when transferring pics to another hard drive, my son tripped over the USB cable while it was running, HDD fell and corrupted/ruined the drive. I shipped it off to a recovery service but they informed me the data was gone. All pics of the first few years of his life were lost, at least with physical photos, they don’t disappear unless fire or flood. After that incident, I’ve learned to make multiple backups on separate drives and cloud storage.

    I hope the thief has the decency and balls to give back this family’s memories!
