Victoria Dye Katona   GLEN BURNIE, MD
My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on May 2nd, 2013 and passed away on July 4th, 2013. On September 17th, we were finally able to order a memorial for her grave and paid for it in full. Unfortunately, we ordered from a company/man that has been scamming grieving families and we lost both our money and the memorial. We do not have the additional money to order a new one, so we are asking for your help so that we may honor her grave. It pains us to go visit her in an unmarked grave, as if she isn't loved enough for anyone to purchase a marker for her. If you would like to verify our story, we ordered our memorial from Maryland Memorials. They were recently featured on wbaltv
for scamming consumers and can be found on the BBB website
with numerous complaints as well as at ripoffreport.com.


We are estimating that it will cost about $4,000 to purchase a new marker. Our goal is $4350 to cover the memorial and the fees.


This is what my mothers grave currently looks like:





The stone was placed there by my son to hold the papers that he had drawn for her.


Any help that you could provide will be greatly appreciated.
