ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) — A North County woman is hoping someone will return handwritten letters that were stolen from her on Friday. 

“I know they love me, but to read that stuff, it's just important to me,” said 28-year-old Tiffany Gaschel,

She said her father passed away from a brain aneurysm seven years ago this month. Her sister died last April.

Gaschel said their handwritten letters have been helping her cope with the loss. 

“Letters, personal writings," said Gaschel. "When I was in basic training in boot camp, my sister wrote me letters and I wrote her letters."

She said the letters were in a bag on her yellow bike. She parked it right in front of the Yogurt and Yummies store where she works in Escondido. 

“It had been here a couple of times, so I figured it'd be ok,” said Gaschel.

She said it’s not about the bike, it’s about the priceless things inside. 

“Other than them, it's all that I had,” she said.
