There have recently been incidents in our area of homes being burglarized during funeral visitations, memorial services, weddings or other events. While we have not used addresses in published obituaries for decades, the internet makes it easier for criminals today to identify family member addresses from the available information. This type of activity occurs in cycles every few years and often involves organized rings working an area. It is not a new phenomenon, however reprehensible and disconcerting.
We strongly advise that all listed family members have a neighbor or friend watch or stay at their homes during any published event hours, as well as at the home of the deceased.
Dyck Security, a local company (810-982-5331) can provide security guards to our families at a cost of $25 per hour. 48 hours advance notice is required to schedule this service. Please identify yourself as a client of the funeral home if you call them directly. Your funeral director is also able to assist you with these arrangements if you prefer.
