She took my money also ,I buried my husband , two days later I went to her to put a death date on his head stone that was bought from her a several years ago . I had no reason not to trust her .
I was still very upset at the lost of my husband of over fifty years at the time . She took my check , cashed it and kept the money . Never bothered her one bit that I was crying over the loss of my husband .
I have no pity for anyone that steals money that was meant for a dead loved one .
At least the funeral home didn't steal the ten thousand dollars I was out on his funeral .
I filed a police report on her , hope she does some time in the pen but she probably will get off .
. I hope I have your name so you will be repaid. Maybe try using your real name when posting on here? If you can put stuff on here you should use your name. Make sure I have your name I'm the one taking care of things. If you want your money back .......

She stole my money, also. I know she is already out-she needs to be in prison. She is a sorry person.
. I hope I have your name. I will be writing checks soon to pay back folks. I have a list hope yours is on it. If you would use your name on here I would know if it was on the list. But ??? She is my Mom and a wonderful person. She just has some problems and she is working through them. She is working very hard to repay the money to everyone. She has repaid 10 folks already. I hope all of you on here are perfect and can sleep good at night knowing how you talk about people.

How can she repay everyone while in jail? From the sounds of things she could sit in jail because you are repaying everyone. Besides, who would hire her now?

If you have the receipt book, shouldn't you have the names?

For you folks that got ripped off don't start counting that refund money just yet. Remember the old line "the checks in the mail"?

. I have a list from Dion Yancy but I hope it is right. I don't have the receipt book just copies of the receipts for each customer not the book.

The company had her do that. She was to cash the check, take out her commission and then send them the order and money.
. This is true

no she didn't steal Sidney's monument she took the money for the monument and spent it, yes Sidney's mom has the receipt for the money and has shown it to a lawyer. mary is a low person. no she isn't sick . it is not a sickness it is sorry.
Sydney's mom has faxed me one of the receipts but not the other one yet. I have been in contact with her many times and she knows as soon as she gets me the receipt I will write her the check. Have been waiting for SEVERAL weeks for this. Yes this happened and I'm trying to make it better with Mom's help. Yes it is a sickness. Addiction is a sickness. The person I used to be would say --- I hope you never have to go through any addiction problem with any family member---- but after reading this,,, that person isn't me anymore. Have some compassion she did something VERY wrong but her and her family are repaying the customers. She is working her butt off, sold everything she owns, stayed in jail BUT she is still alive thank GOD and here to face all this.

. We the family have made it possible for all the customers to be repaid and it not have to been in small payments. This should start in the next week. Mom has to make the payments on this. Like I said in another post she just got a job yesterday and she does work for family that we pay her for.

. She has no way of going to gamble (court order no driving or availability to vehicles, can't leave the state) and is going to therapy every week for the addiction. This person knows everything and has known Mom for years. Not a family member. Very public person and well known.------Is that your name in your birth cert.?

Well no one can control their children when they are adults and yet parents, grandparents and other family members suffer embarrassment when they make serious mistakes. I would hope people would give the same consideration to carol and Kenny because one cannot control parents or grandparents. Please go easier on this and let legal actions do their job.
. Thanks. I'm not embarrassed of Mom, I'm shocked. I love my Mom and will no matter what. If this had been me, she would be beside me with her head high. Love is unconditional for someone that has gave you life and done without raising you by theirselves, been a great Mom. We are getting her help and helping the customers get their money back which is important to us and Mom.

. If they go to prison the customers wouldn't get their money repaid. If it was someone that had done it to me --I would want them to work and repay my money. I would want to be able to buy a monument somewhere else. In prison there wouldn't be any money made and it wouldn't be paid back.

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.
. Everything has been sold. Done
