Woman searching for solutions following corporation fails to install her late husband’s headstone

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Cheryl Laferty and her partner, John, ended up married for 38 yrs.

But in January of 2019, John handed, and was buried in the cemetery across the street from the home the pair shared in Madison County. Then, in July of 2020, Cheryl purchased a headstone for her late husband’s gravesite from Yauger Monumental Is effective in London.

“It was beautiful,” stated Cheryl. “It was a incredibly, really professional, very useful, nice encounter.”

Cheryl paid out additional than half of the price tag of the headstone, about $1,000, with the rest to be paid out at the time it’s in location. But that first meeting on July 28, was the last time Cheryl would hear from the firm.

“About 3 months went by, and there was no term from them. I resolved to drive more than, and the location was just simply just locked down,” claimed Cheryl.

So, Cheryl called Superior Contact 4. I went to the business on February 22, and the lights were being off, and the doorways were being locked. Only a indicator hangs, citing an “illness” as the explanation for the closure.

“If they would just call me or say we’re getting this delay, or we experienced this challenge with… What ever. I imply, we all have challenges that appear up. And just to hear nothing is the hard component,” said Cheryl.

Soon after several unsuccessful attempts to get a response, I went to London Town Corridor. Mayor Patrick Closser explained he’s attained out to the enterprise, and has not listened to from any person given that October of 2020, incorporating that the city or legislation enforcement are not able to take action, till unsatisfied customers do.

“There have not been any rates filed at this level, but I am using that into thought,” claimed Cheryl. “We’re going on 9 months, and I feel out of respect for my husband, and, it is just time for closure.”

I attained out to the London Division of Law enforcement, and Chief Glenn Nicol instructed me there was only one particular complaint versus the company on file, but that was settled. Nonetheless, he explained the division “would settle for any complaints and look into each individual 1 to be thought of on its deserves.”
