I can not believe how many of you are STILL obsessed with this pathetic business. Is it because you are uneducated and can't find jobs elsewhere or simply in positions that make you feel important when elsewhere you would not be of any relevence. Honestly, I came across this while cleaning out my computer, and here you all are.

The management are rednecked, ill educated, lacking social grace, tact, and are simply yes men. Why do you people continue to be employed and or concerned? Find some dignity and move on with your lives.

When Jim and his wife worked in West Virginia he was walking aroung with a tape recorder in his pocket. When the office wa broken in the recorder was listed as stolen. However before the property was recovered by the police the lead administrator and a fsc found it in the office and played a bit of it. They heard Diana yelling at him that he had nothing of his own, all the property they have was hers before she met him. She told him he would be nothing if it was not for her. The Lead admin got fired for that but the FSC did not. Goodman e-mailed his resignation at 5pm that same day. While he was at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens (this was a combo unit) he told families that the funeral directors would rip them off and that they should buy the cheapest casket they could. I understand he was also involved in a little rip off involving the family of a young man killed in Iraq. Stewart gives the lot, o/c & vault for free. He had a FSC copy a contract and fill it out with the cost and fax it to the Army so when the check came in the family could buy a bench with the money. I saw so many ways he screwed the families.

I am sure both Jim and his wife are doing the same things to the families they serve in Albuquerque as they have done all across the US. Seems like the funeral homes would check into their pasts, and either not hire them, or fire them if they see what they are doing is unethical.

Listen people, who cares about these losers Jim and his wife, the real deal is trust monies missing and who has the money. And where did it all go? Who's bank account, who's bed, and how can these people be walking around now, not in jail? This is the question. As I said before
Clayton, Katz-Crank, Nelms, and Singer. Who has the money? They know they have it somewhere, which one is the ring leader?
Reply's people, lets get back to what this blog is about. Affairs, missing trust funds, lies,
blackmail, and concealment, thats just the nice items.

Reference the Cemetaries in Michigan that were involoved in this debacle: They are still looked at as less than on the up and up. I have personally had problems with the one near Ann Arbor. My parents gravesite was a mess, so I persoanlly went and put peat moss and grass seed on it - went back a month later, and all the peat moss was gone and some awful looking dirt was placed in its place and the site looked worse than ever. the staff person (name Er) had made all sorts of promises but the information was so totally wrong that my sister was very upset with the whole place.
Looks to me like nothing has changed - even with new owners.

I have pre-paid for a crypt next to my deceased mom - and I wonder if it will be available at my death.

I had requested a refund - and it was in process until a new manager came on board - after the State of Michigan jumped in on the financial mess.

Anyone heard anything about a Class Action Suit against ROSELAND PARK CEMETERY in Berkley, MI?
