NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In Staten Island a burglar made off with an item that’s not actually precious, although it most certainly is to the family it was stolen from.

That object is an urn, and it contains a women’s ashes.

64-year-old Pamela Paul said that the urn, which contains the ashes of her recently deceased younger sister, was stolen from her Fort Wadsworth home this month while she was on a trip upstate.

She said that she doesn’t care who took the rosewood box, but just simply wants to get it back.

If the urn was indeed stolen, it doesn’t get much lower than this, does it? Share your thoughts and comments in the section below…
