Polly Klaas remembered at memorial bench in Pacific Grove

There are 2 comments on the Monterey County Herald story from Oct 1, 2018, titled Polly Klaas remembered at memorial bench in Pacific Grove. In it, Monterey County Herald reports that:

Polly Klaas was remembered on a warm sunny morning along the Pacific Grove shoreline 25 years after her kidnapping from her Petaluma home while she and two friends were having a slumber party. Mark Klaas, her father, and the KlaasKids Foundation hosted the event with about 30 in attendance at 719 Ocean View Blvd in the town where both sets of grandparents once lived and about a quarter mile from where Polly's ashes, and those of her paternal grandparents, were scattered at sea.

As a returning resident and home owner in Pacific Grove, my husband and I, along with our rescue pet, Panzi, walk the beautiful coastline daily. I often read the benches, which always give me pause to respect a soul passed, but not forgotten. Last week on our usual walk, we were drawn to a bench decorated with fresh flowers, ribbons and crystal shimmering solar lights at the foot of the bench. "Only 13," my husband said. What a beautiful tribute, I thought, as my dog pulled me along the sandy path. "Why,?" I questioned silently. Upon our return, I saw the name Polly Klaas and at once recalled the young girl and her violent death.
This bench tribute from her grandparents was so moving, but also a stark reminder of the predators that spoil our lovely planet, in one way or another.
Thank you, Pacific Grove for these bench tributes.
