A Valley woman went to church on Sunday and came home to find her family heirlooms had been stolen. 

Rhonda Myers said the jewelry stolen from her house belonged to her mom and grandma. Both women passed away about two years ago. 

"Finding out that someone had invaded our space and taken memories, it's really a lot to handle right now," said Myers. 

Myers said the dollar value of the jewelry is around $5,000. But the memories taken are priceless.  

The thieves got away with all but a couple small items.

"I used to wear a piece of my mom's jewelry every day. Something different, whether it was a necklace or a bracelet of her's, earrings, just something that I could have close to me," said Myers. 

To add insult to injury, the crook(s) seem to have come through the 'doggie door' of her home.

Myers had meant to cover the doggie door since the family's 12-year-old dog died on Thanksgiving Day. 

"The holiday's aren't easy for us anyway right now. We just lost my grandfather in March, so there's been a lot of loss for us the last couple of years," said Myers. 

Now, she's hoping that speaking out will help recover a piece of family history. 

"Especially my mom's things. Those were probably the most precious to me," she said. "Leave it on the doorstep. I won't ask any questions."
