The World’s Largest Funeral Corporation has been caught up in a local grave scandal. This time the Company NYSE:SCI has been caught sweeping up and throwing away memorabilia, left at baby’s grave in Vancover, Canada.
This is a classic case of not enforcing the rules for quite some time, then all of a sudden enforcing them- Momentos at dead Baby’s Graves. One would think just because dead babies are involved an exception would be in order to avoid poor publicity. NOPE not the multi million Service Corporation International Inc, SCI.
Another case of The World’s Largest Funeral Corporation, “Too Big too Care.” And Per the normal SCI and funeral scandal News coverage is not going beyond the local media.
Yolaine Dupont felt she found the perfect spot for her little girl, Ella, to spend eternity when she laid her to rest at Burnaby’s Forest Lawn Memorial Park last spring.
The Lullaby section, where eight-month-old Ella was buried after a heroic battle with end-stage emphysema, had soul, said Dupont. It felt peaceful and happy.
A year later, however, and Dupont said she’s considering her options following enforcement in March of Forest Lawn’s rule concerning site maintenance.
It’s a rule, Dupont said, that’s seen the gravesites in the Lullaby area stripped of mementos — such as pinwheels, figurines and stuffed animals — left there by loved ones.
“I’m incredibly distraught, to be honest,” said Dupont, a native of Quebec. “It is traumatic enough to lose a child. To have to deal with this at the same time is horrendous.”
Dupont said flowers, three miniature flags, a teddy bear and guardian-angel figurines were taken from Ella’s gravesite and thrown away by Forest Lawn’s staff during the cleanup.
