    It was a shitty move on the Pastor's part.

    You know, LOTS of people start up go fund me sites on a regular basis for just about anything.

    I'm pretty sure that if the pastor had put up a go fund me site saying that he didn't want to repossess the marker, but still had to get paid and needed a grand, he could have gotten it paid in a week or so.

    Would be even better if the pastor and the parents both formed a site, because it would garner more sympathy.

    And.................he could have left the marker there and not looked like such a cad.

    /----/ Religious people are perhaps the worst when it comes to business. Many are tone deaf to the very communities they serve.

    It sounds like they made changes that put the price up from the original quote. That should have been made clear. Maybe it was.

    It says in the article that they had originally wanted a simple marker, but then decided to go for a marker that was a bit more elaborate, and the difference in price was 918.00, yes, it was made clear.

    Like I said earlier, the pastor and the parents should have formed a go fund me site, and the pastor should have let the marker stay.

    To me, this is about as low as it gets...no pun intended considering what it is that we are talking about here. The kid being gone is bad enough. At a time like this, you are supposed to help people up, not kick them after they have already been kicked where it hurts the most.

    God bless you and the boy's family always!!!

    Bad decision for sure, but he tried to communicate with this family for payment and work something out. They either ignored him or said they would pay and didn't. This is his business. Many families couldn't afford a headstone like that...should he just give them away?
    Receiving death threats is pretty bad. Remember there's 2 sides to consider here.
