Ebony Parish returned home to also find a memorial card and photographs of Miss Parrish had been taken from the top of her bedside cabinet.
"I was absolutely horrified when I saw that the pot was missing. It was a terrible shock when I realised that someone had broken in.
"Only two things were taken - a television and the pot containing the ashes. Why, why, why did the thief have to take the pot. Surely he must have realised that it was something very special because there was a memorial card and photos of Claire beside it.
