Take care of Medicare card: If you are a senior and carry your Medicare card with you, please be aware that if you lose it, your Social Security number is on it. A good idea is to make a copy of the card and carry it with you after you white-out the first three numbers of your social security number. Make sure you white-out the back side, too. If you lose your wallet, nobody will be able to steal your identity.
Cemetery thief: I’d like to make a comment on grave thieves. My wife passed away in March. Someone over Memorial Day stole the flowers from her grave. These people must be awful hard up.
