That is what I was thinking, too! Hope they put her in jail for taking people's money. Hopefully they will make her pay it back.

I don't know what she did r didn't do, but she's a great hardworking person n if she did something like that, she must have really been desperate! I hate that for her! Or, maybe she had a lot of monuments out to people like u two losers that wouldn't pay for them!!!!

EASY THERE NOW. SHE HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR 2 YEARS AT LEAST.
TAKEN THOUSANDS OF $$$ FROM HARDWORKING PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF.
SHE WAS TAKING FULL PRICE OF MONUMENT UP-FRONT FROM $1000 TO $8000.
WHAT EVER SHE OWNS SHOULD BE SOLD TO PAY BACK CUSTOMERS.

I DON'T MIND JUDGING. ILLNESS OR NOT, SHE HAS TO PAY BACK
WHAT SHE STOLE. YOU REALLY THINK A JUDGE IS GOING TO SAY--
"WELL, LET'S SEE HEAR NOW, YOU TOOK $100,000 OR SO FROM
VARIOUS PEOPLE BUYING STONES FOR THEIR RECENTLY DECEASED
FAMILY MEMBERS. FAMILY MEMBERS TOSSING IN FUNDS TOGETHER
TO GET THEIR LOVED ONE A DECENT STONE. BUT, YOU TOOK THAT
MONEY AND GAMBLED IT ALL AWAY FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS.
LIVING IT UP ON NICE FOOD AND ROOMS AND DRINKS AT TUNICA.
O MY, SINCE GAMBLING IS I GUESS A ILLNESS YOU SAY? WELL, IN THAT CASE
I GUESS WE WILL JUST LET YOU GO. NOW YOU BE SURE AND TRY TO GET
THAT HABIT UNDER CONTROL NOW OK? AND YOU PEOPLE THAT LOST OUT
NOW JUST GET YOUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER AND COLLECT MORE MONEY
AND BUY ANOTHER MONUMENT SOMEWHERE ELSE. CASE CLOSED"
IN THE LIBERAL WORLD WE ARE IN NOW, THAT IS PROBABLY WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

Just so you know all the money for the monuments had to paid UPFRONT BEFORE the monuments were made. Maybe you are the "loser" because you don't know the full story. And even if she was desperate as you say. How heartless do you have to be to steal money from people who had lost a loved one and were trying to do one last thing for them. Get a clue!

I completely agree with you. It doesn't matter what the reason was she STOLE money from HARD WORKING PEOPLE and what is really despicable is she stole it from grieving, heartbroken people who lost a loved one. She needs to prosecuted to the fullest, but knowing Randolph County she will just get a slap on the wrist. But I hope they do make her pay it back so the ones cheated can at least go somewhere else to get a monument for their loved ones. She may have medical condition or she may not but it doesn't change facts.
Whatever

You may be her "friend" but if it had been done to you, you would be just as pissed as the ones she STOLE from. It's not judging it's the cold hard truth. It may have been an illness or whatever but don't be so "Holier Than Thou" when you know if it had been your departed family member who's monument she did not order and went GAMBLING with the money for it you would be just as upset. Maybe it is YOU who shouldn't judge the HARD WORKING people she STOLE from.

Sad ass people out there. ALL the people that have guvin money to Sidney Nicole Randall has been ripped off. Her mother paid for her headstonr. And was told for 10 mo. that as soon as the ground dried up and was settled her stone would be there. It will be a year on SUNDAY that she was found. No stone to be out there still. No way can her mother afford another one. This woman should more than pay for the greif she caused all this people. She lied to them and was being trusted by these grieving families. Sad and heartless.

Mary is a sorry person, there is no excuse for what she has done. She has lied and cheated people for 2 years. I ordered a monument, paid full price upfront, she never turned my order in. Kept the money and lied ever time I would check with her about it, ever time it would be a different lie.

She did not own a monument company, she just sold for a few different companies over the last few years. She would have the customers make out the check to her personally and then never send the order or money to the monument company for them to make. The customers were given excuses and lies for months and months on why their monuments were not made yet. A few people finally got smart and called the company directly and the owner had no idea or information about their monument and could prove it. When confronted about this by the company, she had no answer so they quit allowing her to sell for them and shut down the office but she continued to lie and use their name with customers. The companies will probably press charges against her also.

You need to file suit against the owner. They had her selling monuments for her, and so,
are responsible for some of this crap. They should have notified local police when they
found out about this last year.If your receipt says "Cawley Monuments", call them. If it
says "Pocahontas Monuments" you are out of luck.

The monument company spoke to the police about the situation. But it takes customers who were stolen from to press charges. The company never received any money from her on these monuments or even knew they were ordered. She was not there employee. She used them just as she used the customers.
Why

Why would you make out a check to a individual and not the name of the business?? Would you write a check to the cashier at a grocery store? Use your heads people! She scammed you!
