Mother Left Heartbroken After 4-YO Deceased Son's Tombstone Removed Without Notice

All the mother wanted was to celebrate her little boy's life, no matter how short it was. But that comfort was taken away from her.

Death is perhaps the saddest thing that humans have to witness. But what if that death was of your child. This is what happened to Jo Corbett-Weeks. She couldn't coddle and dote over her son, Max Corbett-Gardener, and watch him grow like she would have imagined. When her little one was just four years old, the mother had to watch him pass away and do the most painful thing — attend her son's funeral.



 

It took years for her to cope with the pain of losing a child. And a few years ago, she told BBC that it had taken her three years to prepare herself to get a headstone where Max rests.

"It would have been his seventh birthday on Sunday, and this was like a birthday present to him from me," she said. "I chose a star-shaped stone because I wanted something suitable for Max - something personal. This stone is just so perfect for my poor little chap."

The headstone was specially made and was a way of celebrating Max's life, no matter how short it was. She believed that it was just the right thing to do for her son, who suffered severe epilepsy and its extreme effects.



 

For her son's special memorial, Jo saved up £3,000 for the headstone which had a teddy bear holding a star, and a warm message was dedicated to her son, according to the Daily Mail.
