Repossessing Tombstone

TombstoneMost people understand that if you buy a car on credit and do not make the payments that the car will be repossessed.  The same thing may occur if tombstone payments are not made as discussed in AP, Crash Victim's Headstone Repossessed, WTOPNews.com, July 31, 2007.

Brady Conger died in a car accident about one year ago.  Brady's mother purchased a tombstone on credit and then stopped making payments so that a $750 balance remained.  Memorial Art Monument (Springville, Utah) repossessed the tombstone.  Friends of Brady have now raised enough money to pay the balance the the headstone will be reinstalled shortly.

Defiling someone's final resting place is a repugnant act doesn't matter if it's legal or not it's morally repugnant. A law suit would be the proper action to take.. $750...really? When you profit off death you should expect a little bad karma.
