    We went to cemetery this a.m. to get my dad's and uncle's gravesites ready for Remembrance Day as they were both WW1 veterans. My husband made crosses for both graves and someone stole my uncle's cross. Because it was made out of metal, I think that would be the reason. I'm feeling rather heartsick and disgusted that anyone could do such a rotten thing. I can understand how these homeowners must beel because many years ago my home was broken into and many valuable items were stolen.
