Reward offered for the return of a stolen gravestone

Unfortunately, this is not a joke. On March 1st, a truck transporting a gravestone of a recently deceased elderly woman was stolen near Coors and I40. The truck was recovered at a separate location but the gravestone was not. The grandson of the deceased is offering a reasonable reward for the recovery of the gray granite headstone, no questions asked. It measures 20”x16”x10”, and features an image of roses and a cross on the upper right corner, and an image of a herd of sheep on the lower left corner, with the dates “1912-2015” centered at the bottom.

If you have any information, please come forward and help this family lay their loved one to rest. C'mon, people! Don't you think a centenarian deserves better?
