AURORA, Colo. (CNN) -- A Colorado grandfather is pleading for the return of stolen picture of his granddaughter. The little girl, Veronica Moser, was the youngest victim of the Aurora movie theater massacre last summer. The stolen photos were the last ones taken of her before she was killed.
Robert Sullivan says, "I mean it's a nightmare on top of a nightmare."
The nightmare started for Robert Sullivan when he lost his only granddaughter in the Aurora theater shooting. He says, "There's a huge hole in my heart from the loss of my granddaughter and it seems to be getting ripped more."
Someone broke into his west Denver home stealing money, jewelry and cameras, including a Canon that meant everything to him. He says, "Those are the last photos I have of Veronica before the shooting and that memory card is still in the camera."
The memory card may be stolen, but nothing can take away his memory of that day with Veronica. Sullivan says, "We took her out for ice cream."
He had downloaded this picture. Now the best known photo of the smiling girl he calls an angel. But now the ones of her at the park and at kindergarten graduation are gone. Sullivan says, "Anybody who has any connection, any knowledge of this to please return the memory cards."
He says he's telling his story in hope someone will come forward because losing his granddaughter was hard enough. He says, "I'm not sure what the future holds, but I keep hoping things will get better."
Sullivan says he was planning to use those photos in a special tribute to Veronica during her funeral.
The family is still planning the service.
