Please Say a Prayer

My mother spent Christmas with me, as usual now that my father has died. I took her home yesterday, and her house had been burgled. She hadn't got much of value, but it was all taken, including all the little bits of jewellery that my father had bought her through their 48 years of marriage.
I suppose I can be grateful that there was no 'unneccessary' damage in the house. Other than what the burglar took, there was no malicious destruction.

I'm so sorry to read about this.

What a horrible start to the year 2008.

I'll say a prayer to Our Lady of Consolation.

How awful. Thank God she wasn't home when they broke in... (Yes, I realise that they might not have broken in in the first place if she'd been there, but then again...)

Prayers being offered.
