A mom visiting her daughter’s grave was understandably horrified to find huge tire tracks covering it.
Shanna Roberts told WTTG that she visits her late daughter’s grave at least twice a week. Her 22-year-old daughter, Haley, died in a car accident on April 17, 2017.
But when she made her way to the Sharon Memorial Gardens cemetery in Tyrone, Georgia, on January 31, 2018, she couldn’t believe her eyes. “It made me sick and I just started crying,” Shanna recalled of the first time she saw the tire tracks over her grave.
Shanna was so devastated that she took a photo of the grave and posted it to Facebook, sparking over 100 angry responses. She also complained to the owner of the cemetery.
The owner told WTTG that workers had driven across Haley’s plot in order to dig another grave. He claimed that weather conditions prevented them from taking another route.
After the complaints, the owner called to apologize to Shanna and told her the damages would be repaired. Shanna returned and saw the tracks had been removed. Workers had laid new sod upon it.
“It looks better,” she said. “They did the best they could.”
While she appreciated the apology, the repairs, and the online support, she still feels the pain that the incident caused.
