    Man, that really sucks. Just glad that finding out you were robbed didn't cause the next cardiac/stroke event... Sorry for the loss of your knives, amazing that people dumb enough to make their living robbing others are smart enough to take what's dear and valuable to you without being obvious. I'll probably stay away from you for a while you seem to attract all kinds of things. Unless, of course, the pastry chef has a sister, then please call me immediately If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.

    Son:

    I am very sorry to hear about the robbery. After the health issues, that really is insult to injury.

    However, bad luck comes in threes, and you have certainly had your three. I predict the rest of 2012 will be great for you.

    If there is anything I can do to help, don't hesitate to ask.

    In August 1973 my wife and I bought our house. In December, we celebrated our 5th anniversary by going to my company Christmas party. (She was pregnant with our first child.) When we returned home we found a bedroom window had been smashed and we had been robbed. They took all my firearms and a lot of my wifes jewelry. The cops said they knew who did it, two brothers across the street who had a record, but not enough evidence to go look. We never recovered anything.

    The feeling in the house is strange after a robbery, knowing some thug was rummaging thorough the belongings and taking what they were to lazy to go earn. We had trouble sleeping for weeks.

    I know how you feel and I sincerely hope and pray that the rest of 2012 is much, much better for you.

    Now, go get the insurance, just in case.

    Son, it really bothers me to here this, I can't stand a thief. I am happy your health is turning for the better, and a little "pastry" is good for the soul. Let me know if I can help out some way.

    son, very sorry to hear both about the stroke and the robbery.

    If you have any info to post about some of the knives, jewelry, etc. that were taken people can keep their eyes open when on eBay, etc., although I suspect the thieves have someone local to sell it all to. Might be worth hitting up any pawn shops, etc. in the area and giving them a heads up on what some of your stolen property looks like -- maybe someone will be able to help you out.
