Family Claims Money Stolen While At Funeral 

An untimely crime leaves one family in St. Albans struggling to pay for funeral costs. The Larrabee family had been raising money to help pay for expenses following the death of a grandfather — Bertram “Larry” Larrabee. They tell us while they were at his funeral on Thursday, someone broke into their home and stole a safe containing $3,500 dollars. It has since been reported to police. Family members say the loss is heartbreaking.”It crushed me. I’ve worked from morning until night on this. Then I come in and found that the donations bucket that we had here had been stolen also. There was at least a hundred, I don’t know how much more, but at least a hundred and that was gone too,” said his daughter in law Heidi McDougal. If you would like to support the Larrabee family during their time of need, a relief fund has been set up. Checks can be mailed to:Bangor Savings BankHartland, ME Jennie McDougalP.O.
