Mad Bereaved Mom sign now

Greetings. My name is Natalie Smith-Blakeslee, myself along with my husand Dr. Stephen Hodack and the family of Carrie Ann Smith have started this petition.
I lost my oldest daughter Carrie Ann Smith to leukemia.
She was only 27 years old when we lost her. She passed 10-2-2005
So as any other bereaved Mom I take things out to the cemetery not a lot . But an angel light("12 inches high) that will light up at dusk. My sister put a small stone there "If tears could bulit a stairway to heaven, I would bring you back again " and a small 2 in. angel.
I got a call today that those few items were removed. I know reading from other bereaved moms that this has happened to them. This should not be able to happen. I am outraged and have made necessary calls to change all of this.

I am also starting this petition as well. Please sign this if you agree that :
We pay for the resting place of our loved ones we should be able to put items at holidays , birthdays passing anniversaries. AS well as any time we wish as long as we are maintaining our area that we bought and purchased for our now deceased loved ones.

I will do what I can to make sure this is allowed in all cemeteries as well.
My name is Natalie Smith-Blakeslee

    I also visit my daughter's resting place often and would be appalled if the items I left there were removed. They mean so much to me, and I wouldn't want to loose that connection.

    It's a shame that anyone wants to dictate how we grieve. The grave of our children is the last place we left them...Removing items from a grave is did not belong to the person that took it..

    This is an outrage! You should be allowed to put whatever you want at your loved ones gravesite.
  • 14 April 2015331. Kathie C
    I feel that everyoen should have a right to keep what they want on their loved ones final resting place. If there is a limit on what can be put there it needs to be addressed up front not wait and then take the things that parents and loved one leave.
