Hyannis daughter grieves for her mom's ashes which were in her car
Neighbor wants to help get them back to her
HYANNIS - "M" lives in Hyannis and recently lost her mother who never owned or drove an automobile.
But her mother loved to go driving with her daughter, so when her mom died and was cremated, she placed the ashes in a jar wrapped in a velvet sack, and stored it in her SUV's glove compartment.
Last night a thief broken into the SUV and took everything out of it including the velvet bag, perhaps assuming it contained jewelry.
All it contained was mom's remains.
"M" hasn't reported the theft to the Barnstable Police because nothing of value was stolen, and she's afraid of getting crank calls if we publicized her name, so we have another solution.
Her next door neighbor, television producer and musician David Rojay who blogs on cc2day and publishes his novels here, has offered to screen calls for "M".
So if anyone knows the present whereabouts of that velvet bag with mom's ashes, please email David at [email protected].
