sorry to hear your grandma passed on
I hope because it was unexpected it was peaceful. losing a family member that has lived that long must feel as if the sun stopped rising. something you could count on will be missing. it also seems that she passed on to you the strength to travel on.
take the dogs for a long walk and think of her. you'll remember why she woke up every day.
Condolences on the loss of your Grandmother.
My condolances on both counts.
It can be very tough to lose family, although my grandparents died before I knew who they were.
The burglary. Been there. Done that. It really ticks you off. My weapons are now well hidden so they won't easily be found by burglars.
Sorry for all the losses,
especially the people ones.
The particulars of the burglary sound like a druggie in severe need. Lone or maybe a girl/boy duo. Didn't take more than they could fence quickly. The gun could be a problem ...
Sorry to hear about your loss
A friend just recently almost lost her mom and, then, her grandmother died a few days ago. She's a wreck.
Thanks for all your thoughts
I'm sorry to hear of both your family loss and the burglary
My condolences on the loss of your grandmother. I also know what it's like to have your home burglarized and how creepy it makes you feel. When it happened to us (in New Jersey) they only took some worthless jewelry and the contents of a coin jar. A neighbor saw them and called the police. They were picked up a short time later scoping out another house. We got all our stuff back but as far as I know, one of them managed to escape jail time simply by not showing up for his court appearances. The system in Newark was too busy to go hunting him down, I guess.
For what it's worth, they never did try to enter our home again.
Sorry for your losses, grim.
Your Grandmother's life was one to be celebrated!
She was an eyewitness to so many discoveries and events in her lifetime. I know you miss her, but her memory is a treasure.
Bummer re: the burglary. Makes one feel so violated. You might get some stuff back, but the anger stays for a while. I know from experience.
I appreciate your thoughts and condolences.
Update on the break in.
Well, the cops caught a theft ring based out of a local Best Western. Found some of my boarder's stuff - pistol and video game but not the TV. These folks are apparently a group based out of the next county over, that went on a break in spree. The sheriff from the next county over tracked them to the local hotel because of some suspicious behavior on the part of a couple of these people. Apparently the break in was totally random, or so the cops say. So much for my feeling we had been cased out by a local neer-do-well.
Cops say this is the fastest they have ever seen stolen goods recovered before.
I'm considering putting in a commercial home alarm system, but haven't made up my mind yet. Got to do some research.
It's good they were caught.
It might help you rest a little easier knowing they weren't locals.
And it was a crime of opportunity, (they didn't "case the joint") not that you live in a joint. gangsta' talk
Yeah, I remember putting my alarm in
after the fact.
I did that too
It gives you some peace of mind and it may get you a few dollars off your homeowner's or renter's insurance.
One thing I liked about ADT was that they gave you two passcodes for the keypad. One was real and the other was a fake "panic" code that you could enter if a burglar put a gun to you and told you to turn off the alarm. It acts like it's being turned off but it really calls for help.
Now that is slick! Never heard of it before.
You have my deepest sympathies.
