A certain page in the Facebook Marketplace has been gaining a lot of attention. A woman from Indiana posted that her ex-husband’s pickup truck has been a victim of robbery and what makes the post viral is the item that was stolen in it.
According to Tess Brass, she posted in behalf of Mike Arbuckle, her former husband. His red Ford pickup was broken into while parked outside of his work office which is a company specializing in aircraft painting based in Peru, Indiana. The location is 80 miles in the northern part of Indianapolis.
A few days after posting, it has been shared over 1,350 times and there are over 100 comments from various Facebook users.
After the burglary, Arbuckle saw that his truck was in a state of chaos. There was damaged in the console and a change left inside, about $20, was also taken. These were nothing compared to the single item that the former couple treasures the most which was also taken by the robbers – a silver necklace from Legacy Touch Cross which carries their son’s ashes inside.
Brass said on her post that if the ones who trashed her ex-husband’s truck have a heart, they will put the necklace back to where they got it. She is really hoping for something like this to happen.
Their son Patrick was only 19 years old when he passed away last November of 2015. His body was cremated and the remains were placed in two separate necklaces which Brass and Arbuckle treasure. Brass still has hers while Arbuckle is hoping that his will be given back.
According to Brass, he considers the stealing of the necklace a personal violation because inside are the remains of their child and the necklace is currently at the possession of strangers. They are hoping to get the remains back. He even stated that they could take the cross but place the ashes in a small bag and return it to the truck. They are currently aching for the fact that they cannot get their son’s remain back at this instant.
The necklace such as the one belonging to Arbuckle is gaining popularity for surviving loved ones to place the ashes of the one who passed away. These are called cremation jewellery and gaining popularity all over the world. There is also an option for funeral jewellery in Perth for those who desire to use cremation.
