MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) – An disproportionate tomb in South Memphis is being called a flaw by people whose family members are buried there.
Alice Waller contacted a Action News 5 Investigators for assistance removing movement to make a tomb demeanour like, well, a cemetery.
Waller says she has been fighting for months to get a weed cut. The owners of a properties, she says, have given adult their rights to both cemeteries and that is because zero is being done.
This is not a initial time this problem has been brought to a courtesy of a Action News 5 Investigators.
In 2011, movement was taken after Action News 5 aired a story, though it appears a problem has sprouted adult again — though this time, it’s worse.
Waller wears clip-on butterfly repellent when she visits her grandmother’s grave. She is sleepy of walking by weeds to revisit her desired one.
“I’m customarily in tears when we speak about it,” she said.
In June, she and other family members privileged a grave of their grandmother. But high weeds have taken over once again.
“My uncle lives with me. He’s 95. This is his mom’s grave. He wants to be means to revisit his mom’s grave on a unchanging basement before he dies,” Waller explained.
The owners of a disproportionate property, Carolyn and Calvin Hayes, surrendered their tenure Jul 1.
Waller says no one owns a skill anymore. There is no listed owners on a taxation assessor’s website and no listed phone number.
“It’s not what people dictated when they put their desired ones in graves over here,” pronounced Waller.
Waller says she has oral to state wake and tomb officials in Nashville. She even talked to a Department of Corrections to try and get inmates to purify adult a disproportionate mess.
“Imagine carrying a desired one out here and entrance out here in May for Memorial Day and perplexing to find that grave. This is positively insane,” she said.
Alice Waller says she will not give adult on a quarrel to get a tomb groomed. She determined a Facebook page for a friends of a Hollywood and Mt. Carmel cemeteries. To find that page, click here: https://www.facebook.com/friendsofhollywood.mtcarmel.cemetery
The Tennessee State Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers Burial Services Division are obliged for state tomb records.
