J.C. Shoaf, owner of a monument company has apologized after removing the grave marker of a five-year old child who died of Leukemia according to ABC 6.

”We’d like very much so to return the grave marker back to Woodlawn Cemetery and give our appreciation to the media for helping us get this resolved, that the family would not owe us anything, we will mark their bill paid in full. We waive all expenses from the Leatherman family. If there are any charges to be paid to the cemetery to have this reinstalled, we will pay all expenses for doing that, and we’re sorry this has happened.”

He continued his mea culpa**.**

He continued, “In hindsight, it was a big mistake to have the cemetery remove it, we see it now, but we do offer the family our condolence, and forgiveness… we hope they forgive us. It has hurt everybody involved, and we hope they have it in their heart to forgive us for it. Our prayers are with the family, and we hope we can be friends down the road.”

Because of a payment dispute, a 5-year-old boy's grave marker was repossessed by the company that made it according to ABC 6.

Grieving parents in North Carolina are demanding answers after they say their son's grave marker was repossessed by the company that made it. It's been nearly a year since Wayne and Crystal Leatherman buried their five-year-old son, Jake, after he lost a long battle with leukemia. Crystal says she was stunned when she recently went to visit her son's grave and the grave marker was gone. "He repossessed it, like it was a car," she said.

Wonder if they would be sorry if it hadn't been plastered all over the worlds internet... and how many other people have they done this to who haven't had the ability to publicize in the same way.
