A sentimental $50 bill is gone after a man's nephew stole it to take his girlfriend out. The bill was a reminder of a bet made with his best friend and being named godfather to his friend's daughter. The man's sister thinks he's being too hard on his nephew for ignoring him after the incident. What do you think?

My nephew stole a sentimental $50 bill from me, AITA?

A sentimental $50 bill was stolen by my nephew which was a memento of my best friend. After 9 years, my friend gave me this bill when he found out he was going to be a dad. Unfortunately, he passed away when his daughter was 5. The bill was a reminder of his existence and a precious memory. My nephew stole it to take his girlfriend out to eat, but I am heartbroken. I am not ready to talk to him yet and my sister thinks I am punishing him too hard. Do you think I am being too hard on him? What would you do in my situation? Let's read some comments and see what others have to say.
