This is a common technique that thieves use. I thought it was common knowledge to always have someone trustworthy watch the house for the family during the funeral.

Its news to me, any particular reason why a thief would do it while the family is at a funeral?? Just cause they know they aren't there? or another reason

Yeah. They go through the funeral announcements to find a target, knowing no one will be home during the funeral. They then go and rob the place. I imagine they hit Hill because they knew there would be some serious valuables there.

I believe in the inherent good nature of humanity.

Its news to me, any particular reason why a thief would do it while the family is at a funeral?? Just cause they know they aren't there? or another reasonMostly other reasons, like, uh, fearing that a declaration of war would cause negative repercussions with regard to their relationship with the US.
