On Dec. 10, while attending a friend’s burial at Kershaw Cemetery, I visited my late husband’s grave to pay respect. I noticed at this time that my tombstone had been removed. Someone had actually stolen my grave marker that I had placed beside my deceased husband’s grave.
I know this world is cold and people can be mean and vindictive, but this really is too much. I had paid for my marker years ago with my money, so my children would not have to do so once I passed away. This upsets me that someone could stoop so low in life as to steal a grave marker. What bothers me more than someone doing this to me is they have hurt my children in ways that could never be explained.
A police report has been filed with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and an ongoing investigation is in progress as I write this.
If anyone noticed anything unusual at Kershaw City Cemetery between Nov. 20 and Dec. 9, please call them at (803) 273-2666.
I pray that whoever did this finds peace within themselves. It takes a lowly, sick person to do such a crime. The sad thing is that we have been told that once the police find out who stole my marker, it will more than likely be someone the family knows.
