MARGARET JAMES IS STILL STRUGGLING WITH THE FACT THAT SOMEONE BURGLARIZED HER ROSEDALE HOME OVER THE WEEKEND. AMONG THE ITEMS TAKEN... JEWELRY AND A COIN COLLECTION. BUT SHE SAYS WHEN SHE SAW HER SON'S ASHES WERE GONE SHE COULDN'T TAKE IT. "I just lost it. I couldn't believe they took those," she said. SHE SAYS SHE LOST HER SON STEVEN IN 2011 AND HAD HIM CREMATED SO HE COULD BE BURIED WITH HER WHEN SHE DIES. "When I went in and seen the box gone. that was the first thing i thought of was 'i lost him again. i've lost him all over again," said James. She's asking anyone with information to contact the Kern County Sheriff's Office.
