Christine Adams knelt at her 9-year-old daughter Kaeleigh Weatherly's grave fighting back tears. She says she tries to remember the good times, but can't forget when her Kaeleigh died in a tragic go-kart accident in December 2010.
"I can never tell her how sorry I am for letting her have a go-kart. It was something she wanted," Adams said.
She says Kaeleigh's grave site is the one place she can cope with her loss. She frequently dusts off the headstone. For spring, she placed some of Kaeleigh's favorite things around the area.
"I'm trying to keep something beautiful on her grave and they are just taking it," Adams said.
She says this is the third time vandals have hit her daughter's resting place.
"This time it was the worst. All her lights were broken, everything was messed up," Adams said.
Now she wants to send them a message so it doesn't happen again.
"Please leave it alone. I forgive you and understand people make mistakes. But please leave it alone and don't mess with her anymore," Adams said.
Peaceful Gardens has a sign posted in the front entrance that says all flowers and grave decorations must be placed in a permanently-installed vase. They say they are not responsible for what's stolen or broken.
