That is so horrible!!! I can't even imagine!

Yes you are right, much worse can happen and in the grand scheme of things this robbery really doesn't matter. It is just money aside from the ring. he will get over this. He is a strong person and just in talking to him today I can already tell he is starting to get over it. Yeah it does suck, but it is not the end of the world.

Yes everyone should have insurance. I told him months (before he bought his computer) to get renters insurance. It is so inexpensive and so worth it. He said he didn't have anything worth insuring. I think he sees now that that was not quite true.

omg auntdot! i think you deserve to win the lottery or something, after all of that heartache.

and lol about having a car stolen in nyc. everyone i know at work has had at least 1 car stolen, including myself.
i had a leased car that after 2 years was falling apart and dinged up, so it was gonna cost me a lot to get it fixed up just to hand it back in at the end of the lease. then one morning, after a midnight shift, i went outside and found it was stolen. i think i was the only person ever to be happy for that.
but the police gave me the same story. i had to go to them to file a report, and they couldn't have cared less, even though it had just been taken less than 2 hours before.

like everyone says, posessions, even irreplaceable ones aren't important so long as your loved ones are safe.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Gb I'm sorry to hear of your brother's robbery-Even though it was just "things" taken there still is such a sense of loss and even a kind of grief that comes from this kind of thing- the helplessness and violation -to sum it up it still sucks!
(((Auntdot)))There is nothing worse in the world than losing someone to such a violent death-especially at the hands of someone else.Sharing your loss puts intoperspective the difference between losing "things" and losing loved ones-God bless you and may you always have the strength and courage you already seem to live with.Love and energy, Vicki
