When Max Corbett-Gardener was just 4 years old, he passed away from complications due to epilepsy. His family was left grieving as they had to bury their young son.
Jo Corbett-Weeks, Max's mother, saved up $4580 to give her little boy a special headstone in the cemetery that would reflect his spirit.
The headstone was a star-shaped stone being hugged by a teddy bear with an inscription.
“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," Jo said.
It took 3 years to get the headstone paid for and put on the grave site, but on Max's 7th birthday it finally happened.
Three days later, the stone was removed from the cemetery without the consent of the family.
But how could this happen?
