Many of you know that on Halloween my father passed away
Well I live about 4 hours from his place and we fully intend to finish cleaning out the house and garage over the Xmas holidays
My sisters live about half an hour away so twice a week they drive and check things. Well my sister just called and told me someone tried breaking into the garage.
Thank God before I left I took some pretty drastic measures to make it very difficult to get in the garage
I just wish I could understand why the hell people are this way.
Sorry for ranting, just needed to vent a bit and this place works for that as well
Dale, that really sucks.
I'm sorry for your loss. I live about four hours away from my family also.
It's really not that far away but during tough times the distance seems so great.
I'm glad you took "drastic measures", I hope they were potentially painful measures
There are thieves who troll the obits. It's a very sick way to make a living. You were very wise to protect your property.
Nelle beat me to that. People like that behave worse than vultures in human form. I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sorry you had to put up with this. I hope they don't bother trying again, and I wish you well with clearing out the house. (That's always proven for me to be the toughest part of any loss in the family.)
I'm so sorry Dale. you did the right thing making it hard to get into the garage. *HUGS*
That is AWFULL!!!!!
I only dislike people for certain reasons, and my top two are
2. LIARS / CHEATS
...to lose a loved one and them have a dark hearted theif try and steal what is sentimental, goodness..
its not the money for me, it is sentiment that is priceless..
Im very sorry to hear this.
Thanks everyone for allowing me a place to vent. Some people never cease to amaze me
Dale that really sucks, it seems that the more desperate times are the worse the thieving gets everywhere.
That sucks. I'm sorry you had to deal with this during such a difficult time.

I have just been told that my main source of income will end next month so I need to find a new one and fast. I think I am going to have to figure out how to make regular money here as well which I still haven't been successful at.

I had a friend named Lynda I've known since early 70's. We've been through so much together. We were running buddies in the 70's, party animals, then devoted wives & mothers in the 80's-90's. She had Lupus. Fought it for nearly 30 years. Nothing changed between us, still friends, but our...
