Merry Christmas everyone, but ours has been dampened with the thought of evil out there.
In Surrey-Delta, my mom’s house was broken into while she was at my sister’s for Christmas Eve.
They took mom’s laptop and large monitor, her way of “seeing” me on a regular basis as I live in Cape Breton, the flat screen TV, her jewelry box and contents, the purses and wallets, my sister’s computer and worst of all they took “dad.”
My dad was a veteran and the thieves took the portion of his remains my mom had kept for herself. She told the police, “I don’t care about anything else, just bring my husband back.”
Our mom is visually impaired, and in her purse was her CNIB cane and ID, as well as her personal ID, but they left my sister’s bills, go figure.
How sad, on Christmas, let alone any other time of year, to steal from the elderly and the decent citizen.
If there is any hope, I would like to say to those who decided they needed these things more than my mom and sister, that the least they could do is return dad’s remains to their rightful owner.
