I agree with MR. Although it may make you feel uncomfortable, it's worth the brief uneasiness.

My grandmother's sister had $400,000 stashed around her home. She had two children, one died at 4 and her son died before she did. He was married and had no children of his own. Since my great aunt had no children or grandchildren, my grandmother was to inherit all the property, savings, stock and the cash that she thought only she knew about. The day after my great aunt died, her daughter-in-law broke into the house and stole $250,000 that was in a suit case. My grandmother could prove nothing.

As safe as you think your money is in your home, think again!
