    Burglar Returns Urn With Child's Ashes


    Updated:2007-01-11 10:28:54

    NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (Jan. 10) - Eve and Steven Greene made a simple plea to the burglar who broke into their house: Keep the valuables. Return the cremated remains of their 4-year-old son. "Just drop it off somewhere with a note on it," Steven Greene said. "And that'll be that."

    It worked.

    Someone left the urn containing the ashes of 4-year-old Zachary Greene at the end of their driveway Wednesday morning, two days after it was taken in a burglary.

    Police said a burglar broke into the home Monday, snacked on Cheerios and tracked mud all over the house as he filled pillowcases with about $10,000 worth of valuables - and Zachary's ashes.

    Zachary died from cancer in 2005, the St. Petersburg Times reported. His parents kept the urn above their fireplace next to a Play Doh fire truck Zachary made before he died.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Kind of him or her to return it, but when it all boils down to it they're still a scumbag.
