LINDEN - A mother tells News 12 New Jersey that she's been waiting two years for her daughter's headstone. Ann Smith says she paid for the grave marker and has only received promises from the Haren Monument in Newark that it is on its way.
Smith, who recently moved to North Carolina, claims the company is giving her the runaround. However, Haren says it usually takes at least a year to get a headstone made and installed. In this case, the process was delayed even longer when Hurricane Irene flooded the manufacturing site in Vermont, company officials say.
Haren promises that this time, the stone is on its way and will arrive within the next week.
