   A family already grieving over the loss of a loved one is now grieving after his personal belongings were taken from a south city funeral home.  

   Leslie Granadillo had died May 21st after a five year battle with prostate cancer.  

   When his family went to retrieve the items from Kutis Funeral Home on Gravois, they learned that the mementos had mistakenly been given to someone else.  

   St. Louis police are investigating, but Granadillo's sister-in-law, Christy Roberts says the family isn't interested in filing charges.  They just want the mementos back for Granadillo's two young sons.

   "It means nothing to you and has no monetary value," Roberts said.  "Just bring it back.  Bring it here.  Bring it, you know, to someplace public so we can get it back, because we just want it for them."

   The missing items include a memory book, a lock of hair, medallions that said loving father, loving husband and a cross.  Granadillo's family is asking everyone in the area to check dumpsters and trash cans for the items as well.
