    I have known this lady for a long time, we has worked togeather several years. i feel that for her to something like this something is really going on in her life, this does'nt excuse her for what she has done but we all make mistakes sometimes,we cant judge her for her mistakes but we can pray for her.people are quick to judge others for they mistakes until they fall into the same shoes then you want prayer.

    Anybody who would take advantage of an elderly person they were charged to take care of deserves nothing but jail time. What you do to the least of my people, you do to me.....Jesus.

    I hope that she asked God to forgive her, because she have to be on some kind of drugs to steal from a old person. This is so sad "smh".

    This happens all the time, 3 times to my grandmother with different "helpers". Yet she refused to ever go anything about it except have them not come back. A lot of helpers just come and sit on their butts and do nothing. My grandmother had to deal with ones stealing on top of ones who just came, made her bed then sat on their butts doing homework or texting. Most of the companies don't want to do anything about it either. After one stole some stuff from my grandmother, she called the company who told her he had did it to a patient before..Ummm WHY does she still work for them then?

    I know this person! During times like these if those that believe, we must pray!! This is the story that the media wants us to see and read. Whatever is going on, I ask God to restore the minds of all thatcommit crimes!!! Justice will be served mo matter what, but this woman has children and grandchildren and right now they ALL need prayer!!! I KNOW SOME OUT THERE ARE ANGRY, BUT AT LEAST SHE DIDN'T KILL NO ONE!!
