I am so sorry for your coworker and her daughter. What an awful thing to happen especially at Christmas time. People like this make me sick!
My home was burglarized over the summer. Everything in my home that I paid for with money I worked so hard for just vanished. Flat screens, laptop, cell phone, digital camera, etc. Even took all my bottles of liquor that I desperately needed after I assessed the damage.
But you know, those things can be replaced. What can't be replaced is the comfort and security you once received at home. Not only do I hope your coworkers gets her items back but I hope she and her daughter don't suffer the emotional trauma that goes along with a break in.
What helped me was xanax and a newly installed alarm system.
