Update on marker

Anthony called the funeral home today to inquire about Carleigh's headstone that still wasn't up. So I'm letting you all know the latest update.

Brian, one of the funeral directors and the one we worked with for Carleigh, said they had to wait for the stone because it was on back order by the stone company. When the stone company got our stone and got it cut they just missed getting it on the truck for Memorial Day to get it to the funeral home. Now it is sitting on the dock waiting to get shipped in Atlanta, GA. Evidently the company needs a certain amount of weight on the truck before they make a shipment.

Brian said that they guy from the stone company told him that hopefully it will be up here before the Fourth of July. But once it's up here it will take 5-10 days to get it up. Brian knows we've been waiting for it and he said he would get it up as quick as possible once it got here. So, hopefully within these next couple weeks it will finally be up.

Now an update on the NILMDTS photos. Anthony called Kim twice with no answer. He left a message both times. We haven't heard back yet. Not a real great update.

At least you got some answers on the marker---and hopefully they are right and will be up soon!!

As for the pictures----I would be MAD!!!!! Does she live close where you can stop in a studio or something to talk to her? I am sorry---that is one of the first things I want back----hopefully a few days after Jillian's birth! I am very impatient when it comes to pictures-----hopefully you can get them VERY SOON!

Aww, that stinks about the stone missing the truck the first time. But I'm glad that you finally got some news on it. As for the pictures, I am so sorry. I hope Kim gets back in touch with you soon. That's not very business like if she doesn't.

Why don't you give me that girls number and I will call her. hehe

At least you got some answers, but if would have been nice to have been informed about the backorder/shipment delay without having to make the call in the first place. I know that once Carleigh's headstone is in place, things will seem alittle more complete for her.

I am sorry you have to wait for these things. Hopefully it will all come together quickly. (HUGS)

That must be so frustrating for you about the pictures and the marker, but I am glad you have some good news on the marker.I pray you hear from her about the photos very soon, for I know they are very important to you, as they are another tangible part of sweet Carleigh. Blessings, Sarita

Sorry, That last post was suppose to be on a different blog. What I was gonna say is that I am glad that you found out about the plot, but I am sorry about the pics.

Hoping the marker gets there soon. As for the pictures it's terrible it has taken so long, saying a prayer you get a answer soon. I Love Pictures I know I would be having a fit by now. Pictures are so important anyway. I'm sorry your having to go though all of this. Take care & PRAYERS it's soon.

As I said on FB, I'm glad that you got some answers as far as Carleigh's stone....but it stinks about the photos. I would be hopping mad and be hard pressed to be "polite" when calling her. There is no reason it should be taking this long....You have every right to be upset and angry. I hope you get a hold of her soon and can get some answers...

Alyson said...

I'm hoping that's the last call you'll have to make about her headstone.

Pictures are HARD not to have.....I would be very upset too.....

I'm all for giving Christina the number.....he he :0)

Hi Holly,
Three months is a long time to wait for the pictures. I sure hope they get to you soon now.

And the marker will be here before ya know it too,... and then there will be two less things for you to worry your pretty little head about.
(((smile)))

Praying for you sweet girl!

I am so glad you got good news about the marker and you know what is going on with it now. I am so sorry about the pictures though! I know my hubby is a photographer and he has them out to the people within a week or so! Depending on how many there are! There is no reason it should be taking 3 months!

Betty said...

I am glad to hear that the marker is on it's way at least! It stinks, but at least you know what the hold up is. That is a BIG bummer on the pics though. that would drive me nuts. I'm a picture girl. I would want them. NOW! LoL. I hope things work out soon!

Holly- I have been thinking about you this week. I just finished catching up on some post reading. I am so sorry that you have had to wait so long for your pictures and Carleigh's stone. Your path through this walk has not been easy, but your life is a testimony of his Amazing grace!

Ashley Whitmoyer said...

Like I said before it really angers me, being a photographer myself I know that it does not take 3 months to get someone their photos. No reason why you can't keep people in the loop either. She really shouldn't be doing NILMDTS if she can't commit to something.

Glad to hear there was news on the marker and I agree with whoever said they should've updated you without you having to call!!
