The last couple of months have been hard for Rhonda Bass.

She lost her husband, Ricky, to a lengthy illness on June 24. Just over a month later, someone broke into their home and stole several items belonging to her late husband.

"Whoever did it knew my schedule," said Rhonda, who owns RB's 1 Stop off Highway 72 West near Union Center.

Taken in the Aug. 6 break-in at the 601 Highway 72A, Walnut address were five guns (three rifles and two pistols), iPad, television, impact wrench and jewelry.

When Bass came home from work at the store about 1:30 p.m., she noticed a big gap in her back door and she then called the Alcorn County Sheriff's Department.

"They even took his wedding bands and things that were in his casket before the burial," said an emotional Bass. "The most important things are the wedding bands. They were supposed to go to our grandsons."

Among other items taken from the deceased husband were his pocket watch and a Case knife he always carried.

"I know they (sheriff's department) are looking for the things," said Rhonda. "They call me everyday to keep me updated."

Bass has also made flyers and distributed around the area.

"I just would like to know who took everything," she said.

Rhonda and Ricky Bass were married over 35 years before Ricky passed away.

If anyone has information about the break-in, call the sheriff's department at 662-286-5521.
