All they care about it themselves and they'll do whatever needs to be done in order to fulfill their hedonistic desires. If that means destroying a mother's memory of her child she lost, so be it. Such is the case in this situation. Max Corbett-Gardener passed away when he was only 4-years-old – a terribly young age – as a result of complications from a severe case of epilepsy. Max's mother, Jo Corbett-Weeks, worked hard and saved money for approximately three years so she could have a headstone custom made for her son that pictured a teddy bear holding a star with an inscription, costing nearly $5,000. On what would have been Max’s seventh birthday, Corbett-Weeks had the headstone installed for Max somewhat as if it were his birthday present. A complaint was received by someone stating that it didn't conform to the rest of the cemetery and wanted it addressed immediately. Within just a few days, Corbett-Weeks returned to Max's burial site to find that the headstone had been removed and was devastated. According to the Tribunist, She told local reporters: “It would have been Max’s seventh birthday on the Sunday, and this was like a birthday present to him from me. “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. “I was totally unaware this was going on. The council did not contact me and it was the stonemason who told me he’d been ordered to remove it. “I feel upset, distressed and angry. We have been through so much as a family. I could understand if the grave was uncared for or unsightly, but it isn’t. “The headstone meant a lot to me and the family but now we are fighting to have it put back. It’s a horrible situation. We just want to have somewhere to grieve.” It's extremely difficult to imagine the life-shattering heartache of losing a child, especially at such a young age. But to have it made even worse by such disrespectful people because it didn't look like the rest of the headstones is ridiculous. All because of one single person.
