Dad and Family01 Aug 2017 01:55 pm

The person my mom hired to come in for 4-hour stints to watch my dad?  She stole cash out of my dad’s wallet, my mom’s wedding band, the watch Dad gave Mom as an engagement present, all my mom’s jewelry, a gun, and quite a bit of silver cutlery and coins.  Probably last week, on my mother’s birthday.

My mom thought this lady was so sweet because she texted every hour or so with updates about my dad.  Cop laughed. “She was keeping tabs to see if you were gonna walk in and catch her.”

Mom hired a new person today.  Says, “If you get in a car accident, it doesn’t mean you never get in another car.”

    Ugh … I am glad that your mom did not see this as rationale for giving up on having help … and so sorry that this happened. I hope they are able to find the person.

    What Anna said above…and OMG I want to hunt down this person for your family. Just give the word. It’s the saddest when someone takes advantage of a person when they depend on them. Hopefully this “caretaker” is a stupid criminal (most are) and the cops catch up with her sooner than later. Praying your Mom gets her valuables back.
