    From one of the Moms:

    Just because they're dead, doesn't mean you can't be passive aggressive.

    It's a great quote. Her heart is aching, but she's still able to smile at endearing memories.

    "She told investigators she used the money to pay her electric bill."

    Starman may have a justice suggestion for this ghoul.

    “My son Connor always packed a lot of money,” she said. “He wouldn’t spend a dime of it, but he always liked to have it. He was so cheap. He would have made his older brother pay for everything. He was a really smart boy and really cheap.”

    I'm guessing you want the bolded area taken out.

    I think the mom is trying to say that she doesn't believe that just $120 was taken.

    And does paying your electric bill with the money you stole make it better?

    I once stole a loaf of bread just to feed my family, went to prison and was hounded by a cop for years after I finally got out.

    I followed the original crash story pretty closely as my old paper did a lot on the kids who were killed. The older one was a star athlete. The Pioneer Press story mentioned the lady who stole the money had also had health problems few years back from a tick bite that led to flesh-eating bacteria and the community raised money for her.
