Stealing is one thing.  You can contract the "is" to 's.  It's not too difficult.

Not really.  Losing a child messes up a parent.  Losing anyone you love can too, but not as awfully as that scenario.

By the way, keeping ashes around in your car might be a sign you're not coping in a healthy fashion.

My sister was in her forties when she passed away, took my mother almost a decade to let go of the ashes...

she still cries... that was a rough year..

I hope the girls who did this see this story, and feel really really bad for the rest of their miserable, no-count lives.

No, really.

And anyone saying "Mom should get over this," clearly, you've never lost a child, so STFU.

I currently work in a cemetery on the sales end. there are reasons like this why bringing ashes home is a terrible idea.

If it were an urn that would be one thing. I don't know what the consistency of human ashes is but I'm thinking it was dark and all they knew was that it was a bag of powder that didn't make their gums numb. I wouldn't have assumed, "Oh, this must be a pouch of human ashes."
I've never heard of ashes in a pouch.

Honestly as far as I'm concerned... whatever you have to do to cope with something that devastating is fine. If it helped her feel close to her daughter and helped her get through her day, I don't really see it as problematic. It certainly wasn't hurting anyone.

Do tell, doctor. You've had extensive training in understanding the grieving process; tell us, how long should it take to move on in a healthy way? What sort of timetable does one need? Can I tell people I know who have lost family members after a year or two "Okay, you should be at stage X by now, chop chop! Let's get this process on with!"

Yup- and clearly it can't be a highly personal and individual thing and there can't be as many different ways to deal with death as there are people in the world...

There's just one healthy way to deal with grief, and it's whatever this dude thinks it is.

I learned something new today.

That's logically true but it was the only thing she had left.

I don't know how I'd deal with it if my kids died.  Maybe I'd spend the rest of my life trying to build a time machine to go back and fix it.

Seriously though, donate whatever organs were usable.  Burn the rest.  Either get it compressed into a diamond or use it to fertilize a fruit tree in a park.  Then put together a scholarship or something so the kid could have a legacy.

I'm not sure how compressing it into a diamond to carry around would be all that different than what she did- putting the ashes in a small green velvet pouch that she could carry around.

And a quick search shows  that a small scholarship in her name does exist at a university in Canada.

I thought it was an upright baby grand... but I'm no piano expert. I'm pretty sure he borrowed that from some guy's blog if I remember right, as it was transparent trolling in the first thread I saw. Or maybe a later troll turned his photo into a "thing," idk. It all goes back to an actual somber, off-site blog with real people's names, that much I know. Crap, off to google.

Ransom said in future she plans to take her daughter's ashes with her, but will keep them in her purse.

Welp, that solves that. Surely no woman in recorded history has ever lost/misplaced her purse or had it stolen.

There's hurt, and then there's carry around your dead child's body (or what's left of it) in your car for the past 4 years. That's pants shiatting insanity at that point, not grief. You can't even blame the thieves because that green pouch was probably the pouch in the world that had a dead teen's ashes in it that was left in a car in the entire history of the human race. How could they have known?
 
2013-08-15 06:40:02 AM  
Farking sociopaths, man. I thought I was heartless, but you dicks keep on insisting that losing a child isn't lifelong devastation. Maybe if you submit your psychology credentials I'll put some weight into your "come on, lady, move on already!" diagnoses, but until then you're just a bunch of callous assholes chirping about shiat you know nothing about. Sure makes it easy to blame this woman for having her car broken into, doesn't it? Stupid woman, feeling pain and grief after her kid dies, she should have been as smart and numb as these brilliant Fark users.

It's trying to hold onto what's left of her daughter.  It's so easy for people to say what's normal or not normal when they're not in that situation.  Granted I've never lost a child, but I can certainly understand where this mother comes from, having lost loved ones and knowing a person or two that has lost a child.  You do act irrational, you do keep mementos.  It's being human.

You can't even blame the thieves because that green pouch was probably the pouch in the world that had a dead teen's ashes in it that was left in a car in the entire history of the human race. How could they have known?

Yes I can blame the thieves because they're THIEVES.  They had no right going into someone else's property, causing damage, and taking shiat.
