Headstone installed at Detroit Cemetery after more than a year delay


DETROIT – Local 4 has heard from several people about delays with items they paid for to memorialize loved ones at a cemetery in Detroit. Cora Doss contacted us after waiting over a year for a headstone.

Forest Lawn Cemetery blamed it on supply chain issues and promised the installation would take place soon.

Doss said she paid over $2,000 for it.

“This trip was a little stressful,” Doss said. “I’m stressed about it, and then I lost my mum. We did the headstone like a year later. So I think because of the pandemic it would be a bit longer.

Fast forward to just a few weeks after we covered her situation, and there are results.

“Oh, I feel a lot better that I walked out on Monday and found the stone had been put in,” Doss said.

At some point, the headstone was installed, and it’s more than Doss could have imagined.

“It was the same stone we ordered, and it was bigger than I thought, so I’m happy with the job they did,” Doss said.

Now her family can find the grave, making it easier for Florence Bell to visit the cemetery.

Doss couldn’t be more grateful.

“Thank you very much, Local 4, for helping me with the situation,” Doss said. “I don’t think without you I would have done a lot of things.”

Doss is just happy that her problem has been solved. She hopes others can have the same results.
