This is pretty typical for that area. I remember when family members passed away and the their "good" neighbors arrived soon after their passing and dug up all of the flower beds. Bird baths too, whatever. When Danny's house burned down the locals were already trying to loot the scene before the night was over. Imagine how well that must of gone over for him and his family, so the whole Rosewell thing aint no biggie.

Hell the graves at Warner Hall were desecrated in Naxera and some of the ones that did it went around bragging about it. History don't mean much around here.

I am just surprised this was not noticed sooner. I imagine the ones who took over at Rosewell would "NEVER" take, steal, purloin or borrow, or as much remove single rock or brick.*snicker*

I seem to remember this bunch was really good at trying to make some folks feel as unwelcome there as possible based on their own personal judgment too.

I heard chuck Amos bragging about having a stack of them from the place that he's gathered over the years.
