THUNDERBOLT, Ga. (AP) -- A coastal Georgia man says burglars have stolen an urn containing the ashes of his wife of nearly 40 years.
Grant Robinson, of Thunderbolt, says he came home Wednesday to eat lunch and let his dog out. He saw that burglars had broken through his front door and ransacked his home.
Robinson says he noticed a heavy, locked box containing the ashes of his wife, Patricia, had been stolen from his home just east of Savannah.
Robinson says he and Patricia were married for nearly 40 years when she died in December. He was planning to spread her ashes in St. Augustine, Fla., where the couple lived for more than 20 years and raised their children.
