Hi,

Tragically our German Shepherd Rex was called home after a valiant fight with lymphoma the funeral home took Rex to the cemetery where we met a very sweet 92 yr old and her son they gave us time to say our final I love you and to hold told him for a moment longer. When the time came I stood there in disbelief and the owner came over to me and hugged me while I cried they showed extrodinary compassion in the rain and cold for my family. Over the last years they are not able to do as much understandably and it shows we must uncover and locate graves that have sunk, replace broken stones and crosses, remove branches and trim trees, countless loads of debris will need to be removed with dump fees per load . The unsightly trailer must be removed and lighting for the new enterance sign must be replaced and countless stones need to be reset. I secured the assistance of a landscaper from KY, to begin the long stressful, and back breaking, work to get this cemetary back on its feet and a place where I am proud for our family members to rest. He loves animals and understands why this is such an important place and what it means to bring it back to life. The owners bought the land in 41 stared the cemetery in 74 with such love for animals it brought them closer to the community to I think it should continue to be a place where love and compassion for animals is shown. 

I do not have the slightest idea where to begin this process and when I told the Landscaper that he suggested since this is going to be a significant cost upfront as well as continued monthly maintenece that I start this page to assist with the equiptment required, fuel, labor, lights, signs, etc. I went to get him lunch at Panera because he likes that place and it would be better for him in ths heat I sat next to two amazing women who I told this story to and they agreed we should tell people this story and if people donate even  a dollar that will be such a significant help. We left this part for the end because I was not sure about telling it for fear of anti police sentiment and worrying about destruction but it should be told. In the pictures you see a huge stone that is severly sunk that is the resting place of a hero named KING he is a police officer for the city of Clarksville TN, he was savagely murdered in 1978 just before his fourth birthday you can see him on the officer down page. I contacted the SGT. and asked if the FOP would cover the cost of resetting KING's stone but so far he has not had much luck either and this stone is almost 4x4 it is massive and only a proffessional can do the work needed which will be a significant cost which I will pay because hell will freeze over before we let our HERO's stone sit that way.  It took us two hours to dig the stone out it was almost completely covered. We were not prepared to assume these costs our Rex's headstone is not even here yet and anyone with critical and terminal pets knows how fast and how big  and how relentless the bills are but this work must be done.  We realize how tight money gets so we appreciate everyone who read this and looked at the pictures and if you say a huge prayer for us that would be the greatest gift imaginable. If anyone would like to donate thank you in advance as we progress we will show you pictures I want this to be a part of a community of people near and far who love animals. If my police department, and my 911 operators,  are reading this WE LOVE YOU! 

Thank you have a good day and hug the furry kids from us.

We also uncovered countless stones that were buried from never being cared for. There are countless Graves that you can see if you look at the ground that hasn't been uncovered yet. The cemetery is almost if not totally full. You will see Graves so close there is a chance they buried on top other pets. Not sure judging by stones proximity seems that way.

So after all the years they neglect it, now the smell of money the sons are interested and now all in the sudden the cemetery means a lot to them?

How all the years went they refused to pay to have it maintained at least once a month?? All the money they have made and they couldn't make a call and spend any money. Wow

TARP, PAINT FOR POLE AND PAINT SUPPLIES, LABOR FILLING HOLES WITH DIRT, HAULING OFF MULTIPLE TRUCK AND TRAILER BEDS OF BRANCHES, COUNTLESS GARBAGE BAGS FOR GARBAGE ALL OVER, THIS IS JUST WHAT I REMEMBER OFF HAND. PAID DELINQUENT TAXES.

ALSO USED DONATIONS FOR FLEA, TICK, BUG, SPRAY, WEED KILLER, IVY, OAK, SMACKED, KILLER. A SPREADER FOR TRACTOR SO WE COULD DO ENTIRE PROPERTY.

BARRY WENT TO A TITLE COMPANY ON WILMA RUDOLPH BLVD A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND SAID TO THEM HIS MOM MRS. DEVERS WAS IN BEGINNING OF ALZHEIMERS AND THE OFFICE IMMEDIATELY TOLD HIM HE NEEDED AN ATTORNEY TO COMPLETE THIS DEAL AS SHE CAN NOT SIGN LEGALLY. BARRY CALLED OLSON AND OLSON ATTY AND MADE APPOINTMENT FOR A FRIDAY. I WENT THERE AND HE DID NOT SHOW UP THEY SAID HE CANCELED HE NEVER TOLD ME.

WHEN I CALLED THE TITLE CO ON WILMA RUDOLPH SHE TOLD ME HE DID SAY THAT TO HER AND HER OWN FAMILY HAD TO DEAL WITH THAT AND IS WHY SHE SENT HIM TO ATTORNEY. BARRY DENIED THE CONVERSATION. THEN WHILE I WAS AT OLSON AND OLSON THE STAFF MENTIONED ABOUT ALZHEIMERS AND BARRY DENIED IT AGAIN. I FOUND AN ATTORNEY WHO COULD DEAL WITH THE LEGALITY AND BARRY AGAIN REFUSED TO SHOW UP.

HI
9-JUNE-2018 9:22AM GOT A CALL FROM 931-237-2473 MAN WITH DEEP VOICE CLAIM TO BE MRS. DEVERS SON (HAVE NEVER SPOKE WITH HIM WAS DEALING WITH BARRY) HE WAS VERY HOSTILE AND SCREAMING ABOUT THE GO FUND ME PAGE DEMANDING WE GIVE THE MONEY TO HIS MOTHER MRS. DEVERS. HE SAID IF WE DO NOT BUY THE CEMETERY WITHIN A COUPLE WEEKS HE DEMANDS IT BE GIVEN TO THEM. HE STATED HE SPOKE WITH THE REPORTER FROM CHANNEL 5.

SO LETS PUT FACTS DOWN NO WE WILL NOT GIVE ANY DONATIONS RAISED TO ANY OF THE DEVERS. THE MONEY RAISED HAS BEEN TO REPAY US FOR PAST WORK, PAY THOSE HELPING, AND NOW CURRENT AND FORWARD COSTS.

WE HAVE PURCHASED A MOWER, TRAILER, WEED EATER STRING, FUEL, OIL, FLOWERS, WOOD FOR CROSSES, REPLACED SIGN AGAIN, LIGHTS, JUST SINCE THIS SEASON BEGAN. THERE IS NO HONEST OR NORMAL HUMAN THAT CAN NOT SEE ALL THE WORK DONE NOR WILL ANY NORMAL PERSON BELIEVE WE SHOULD NOT USE THE MONEY RAISED TO COVER THESE HUGE COSTS, LABOR, ETC.

WHAT WE RECENTLY FOUND VERY ALARMING. WE HAD THE MONEY FOR OVER A MONTH FOR PURCHASE BARRY DEVERS CONTINUALLY REFUSES TO BRING MRS. DEVERS TO SIGN THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT OR SALE DOCUMENTS. BARRY UNKNOWN TO US WAS USING A REALTOR AND DEMANDED WE PAY HER COST, A SURVEY COST OF 1,200.00, AND FILING OF DOCUMENTS, IN ADDITION TO PURCHASE PRICE. WE REFUSED TO PAY A REALTOR OR SURVEY THAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SELLER.

WE FOUND A SURVEYOR WHO WOULD CONDUCT THE SURVEY WITHIN DAYS AND A AMAZING DONOR WHO WOULD ASSIST WITH COST JUST TO GET THIS GOING BUT BARRY REFUSED. I SPOKE WITH MRS. DEVERS AND SHE WANTED TO MEET AND SIGN BUT BARRY REFUSED AND HE TOLD US WE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO PICK HER UP AND TAKE HER TO SIGN THE PAPERS AT A NOTARY.

THEY HAVE HOUNDED US FOR MONEY FOR MONTHS YET, REFUSED TO SIGN THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT WE GAVE THEM. IT STARTED TO STINK SO I WENT TO COUNTY AND PULLED DEED I LEARNED THAT 590 NEEDMORE WAS PUT INTO FRANK AND BETSY DEVERS NAME ON 6-OCT-2000 I ASKED THE OFFICE WHAT THAT MEANT THEY SAID FRANK AND BETSY ARE THE LEGAL OWNERS NOT MRS. DEVERS WHO THEY LED US TO BELIEVE WAS THE OWNER. THE TAXES ARE IN MRS. DEVERS THAT'S ALL. WHEN WE WERE IN TAX OFFICE THEY SAID TAXES WERE BEHIND AND OCCURING INTEREST SO AS A COURTESY WE PAID THEM ABOUT 48.00 WHEN WE NOTIFIED BARRY AND HIS WIFE HER RESPONSE "NO ONE TOLD YOU TO DO THAT" NOT THANK YOU AS A NORMAL PERSON WOULD RESPOND.

PEOPLE ARE FREE TO LOOK AT THIS PAGE AND THE PICTURES SHOWING THE DECAY OF THE CEMETERY COMPARE TO RECENT PHOTOS UNLESS YOU ARE AN ABSOLUTE MORON YOU CAN SEE ALL THE WORK DONE.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN OFFERED A LUNCH, BOTTLE OF WATER, A THANK YOU, LITERALLY NOTHING FOR CLEANING UP THEIR NEGLECT. I ADMIT I WAS FOOLED I LIKE MOST BELIEVE AN OLDER WOMAN AND KIDS WERE GOOD SO WHEN WE VOLUNTEERED TO HELP IT WAS FROM OUR HEARTS SO THAT OUR LITTLE BOY AND OTHERS LOVED ONES AREN'T IN A DISGRACEFUL PLACE.

SO AS IT STANDS THE MONEY WE HAVE RECEIVED HAS WENT INTO GAS, EQUIPMENT(TRACTOR AND TRAILER), WOOD, FLOWERS, LIGHTS, THE SIGN AGAIN, STRING, OIL, GAS, TO NAME A FEW.

AS OF NOW GIVEN HOW WE WERE LIED TO AND TREATED WE WILL NOT BE DOING ANY FUTURE WORK EXCEPT AT OUR PETS GRAVE. I AM CONSIDERING HAVING HIM EXHUMED.

SO GOING FORWARD IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO DONATE TO HELP US REGAIN SOME OR ALL OF OUR COSTS THAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED IF NOT WE UNDERSTAND AND ARE TRULY GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE HELP GIVEN TO DATE AND THE CARE.

ALSO I TOLD CHANNEL 4 AND 5 WE WERE IN THE PROCESS OF HE PURCHASE AND THAT WE WERE HAVING THESE PROBLEMS WITH THEM. WHEN IT BROKE WE SEEN THEY REPORTED US AS OWNERS. CHANNEL 5 SAID SHE CONTACTED MRS. DEVERS BUT MRS. DEVERS REFUSED TO TALK WITH HER. WE HAVE DONE IT HONEST, FOR THE RIGHT REASON SO WE HAD NO ISSUE SPEAKING WITH ANYONE NOR WOULD WE.

THIS IS A SHAME IT'S HEARTBREAKING BEYOND WORDS FOR US. BARRY THREATENED IF WE DIDN'T PAY THE SURVEYOR HE WOULD SELL IT FOR 5 TIMES WHAT WE OFFERED ACCORDING TO THE REALTOR HE'S WORKING WITH. WHEN I ASKED THE REALTOR NAME OR NUMBER HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW. HUH! MY RESPONSE HAS BEEN THE SAME WE HAVE HAD THE MONEY BRING HER OR WHOEVER OWNS IT AND LETS GET IT DONE BUT HE REFUSED SO LET'S BE VERY HONEST WHAT IS HAPPENING.

PERSONALLY I WOULD HAVE MORE PRIDE AND SELF RESPECT TO EVER ASK FOR THE DONATIONS WHEN SOMEONE ELSE HAS DONE ALL THIS FOR ME, MY MOTHER, MY FAMILY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR DONATION BACK PLEASE TELL US AND WE WILL DO IT ASAP WE UNDERSTAND.

VERY SAD DAY. CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.
