Just when you think you already know about every possible way people can be cruel, a story like this emerges to break your heart. A mother from England was devastated, on top of being in the middle of grieving, after the city council of Worcestershire removed the headstone of her deceased son. The action was taken after someone complained that the style of her headstone wasn’t ‘in keeping’ with the style of the lot.

Jo Corbett’s son Max was only 4 years old when he passed away due to complications related to epilepsy. She saved up for nearly three years before she was able to pay over $5,000 for a special custom-made headstone. The design features a teddy bear holding a star with a tribute engraved into the beautiful polished stone.

The grieving mother waited until her son’s seventh birthday to install the headstone. She never expected that it would be taken down without her permission only three days after it was installed. The city council never even contacted her to let her know that they were removing the headstone.

‘It would have been Max’s seventh birthday on the Sunday, and this was like a birthday present to him from me’ she told local newspapers. She went on to say that she was angered by the city council’s actions, and she couldn’t understand why they thought the stone was so offensive to the family that requested the takedown.
