Grave Thieves

Rain Dropphoto © 2010 Kirsty Andrews | more info Sometime after Memorial Day weekend grave thieves visited the Cemetery where my Sister is buried.  Luckily nothing was taken from her grave.  Some family and friends of mine discovered that their loved ones graves were robbed.  The people who committed this crime have no respect for the grief others feel.  To remove items left for someone else is just callus and cold.  Some of these items were handcrafted by loving family members in tribute to their loved one.  The emotion one goes through is hard enough when you lose the ones you love.  To discover that their victims of grave thieves is like rubbing salt in a wound.  It is painful!

My cousin was visiting her Father's grave during Memorial Day weekend and left her purse in the car.  Accidentally the car was left unlocked and someone stole her purse while she was at the Cemetery.  Now a purse can be replaced but what was inside the purse was irreplaceable.   Her wedding set was in her wallet and it was the one her parents were married with.  Her Father died when she was very young and this wedding set along with another ring he had given her Mother were very special to her.  Now I know crimes happen when opportunity presents itself.  But it is inconceivable to me how these people live with themselves.  Grave thieves will one day have to answer for their deeds.
