SUGAR CITY, Colo. -A southern Colorado family is grieving the loss of their daughter all over again after her ashes were lost in the mail.
Tina and John Attebery were expecting twins last year, but 18 weeks into the pregnancy, they found out they’d lost one of the babies. Her remains were cremated. Some of the ashes were put in necklaces and mailed to close relatives. One necklace was sent along with a letter to Attebery’s sister in Arizona. But they say it didn’t make it.
“She said that the letter was there, but not the necklace. And the letter was taped back shut with the ashes of my daughter missing,” Tina Attebery said. “It was hard enough losing my daughter the first time. Now I feel like somebody has kidnapped her on top of it.”
