BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — As CBS42 continues to push for answers to help people with ties to George Washington Carver Memorial Gardens know what to expect, one woman who is still grieving after a series of personal losses is left with a number of questions.

Sarah Fornis lost her daughter, her mother and her aunt in a span of four months.

Now, she’s left wondering if she also lost the $1,000 that she spent on a grave marker.

Her mother was buried in June at the site, but Fornis says the marker never arrived.

Even now, she cannot reach the management.

“I’m still in the transitional period. She hadn’t been buried too long. And when we purchased the marker the lady said it will be 12 weeks before we could get it back, so it’s about that time now and I haven’t heard anything and it’s paid [in] cash,” said Fornis.

“My son went out there. It’s not there. The last time I went up there myself, my husband and I went up there, and  it wasn’t nothing up there then,” said Fornis.

“I just want some closure. I just want to know,” she continued. “They’re not telling me. Don’t even know the company if they even had a company to make it out to. They said they did and I trusted them. I don’t know. I don’t know,” she continued.
