Actually this is more common than most people realize. I have a large extended family and can recall that at least one relative or family friend staying at the home to watch things while everyone else attends the service. Burglars read the obits too.Zoning Goddess said:Years ago, I worked for a man whose 13-year old daughter died suddenly. Their house was burglarized while they were at the daughter's funeral. Hard to believe what some low-lifes will do.
