Debbie Aldridge's mother passed away in February 2018, she was buried at Rosehill Elmwood Cemeteries in Owensboro.
Years after her burial, Aldridge said she noticed her mothers gravesite was going down hill.
"It was the day after Easter, I laid on her grave and I cried," said Aldridge. "It was heartbreaking, they had not even mowed,"
She also noticed the lack of maintenance to the grass, and several gravestones knocked over and leaning. So she started a group on Facebook with over 60 people, who are experiencing the same issue.
"I was really surprised that so many others had concerns, as well, just like I did," said Aldridge. "We have a family member that is being disrespected."
This led her to make a photo album filled with pictures taken by members that recently visited their loved ones grave site, with the intention to show the company.
44News did reach out to Park Lawn Corporations, the company in charge of the maintenance and upkeep at Rosehill Elmwood Cemeteries.
The Director of Operations, Robert Garner said there are reasons and guidelines they follow when dealing with these issues.
Garner also said since the pandemic, the lack of maintenance workers has been one of the biggest reasons.
As a way to help that, Garner said they have developed a 3 day system to stay on top of things. Garner also said he understands the groups frustration and ensures the company is doing all they can to make those improvements.
Aldridge and the others in the group say the improper treatment has gone for too long, and they're hoping their voices will finally be heard.
