If he wanted to steal, what was wrong with the homes in North St. Louis. Must be pretty desperate to take that chance. This mess has gotten crazy, it seems to me that there is too many people visiting too many homes that have intentions in mind. Know who's coming in your homes, they are getting too much inside information on your lives to know if someone is at home or not, who lives there, knowing your schedules for work and so on. Sometimes, they are right under your nose. In some cases, your children might be having company in the house while the parents are gone, that informs someone of your contents in your home that tells someone else and it goes from there. Things that simple can lead to problems. Watch who frequents your homes, if strangers, or new friends, sorry but they should remain outside. Step outside and speak with them, remember Insurance can't replace things that are dear to your heart and family.

Antoinette, your message to me was inappropriate, I happen to be one of those homes in Florissant. I had things taken from me that can never be replaced such as videos of my deceased parents., pictures of my deceased siblings that were in a strong box for protection in case of fire. I am a person that donate to every charity that there is and don't mind helping anyone. So please read my article again because you don't have to take large items, it's the small things that matter most. Those people that stole my videos and pictures have no idea what part of my life that they have taken and they just pitched it when they saw that it was no value to them. I am getting ready to give to the charities again so let me know if you need something for you or your brother. Virginia

Cudo's to you Virginia and I agree with everything you said,watch who you invite into your home. Sometimes it can be a relative as it was in my case. So i'm wary about anyone who visits me now. And Virginia you don't have explain yourself top Antoinette, it's her brother so of course she's going to be angry when someone speaks negatively about him, he chose that path and he needs to pay for his actions.
