Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Oct 2017-paid a personal visit to Arnold's Mortuary and discussed having the headstone of my parents and grandparents cleaned. At that time I gave them a picture of the stone and direction to Brandy Dame.
April 2018- called and talked to Brandy, at that time she informed me that they had been purchased by Upstate Momument. So discussed again the cleaning of the stone
May 22,2018 Talked to Ricky Gadlois from Upstate about purchasing a stone for myself to be placed on parents gravesite. We also discussed the cleaning of the stone. They would do it at the same time
May 24, 2018 sent another picture of the stone that needed cleaning.
May 24, 2018 received notice that picture and the monument that I wanted would fit under the tree.
July 9, 2018 Sent an email asking about the cost of cleaning the stone.
received an email stating the cost of the cleaning was $175.00
July 10, 2018 I told Brandy I would sent a check for that amount.
then discussed the cost of the stone for me. and that she would sent a contract
for both.
July 27, 2018 a check for $675.00
Aug 9, 2018 called Brandy asking why the check had not been cashed. She had received it and was picked up by Upstate
Aug 21, 2018 check cashed by Upstate
Oct 24, 2018 I requested to terminate the contract as I had received no notice or picture that the work was completed by Upstate. Brandy said the work had been done, but I had no proof.
Brandy stated that she would go this weekend an send me a picture.
Nov 7, 2018 Still have not received a picture or any notice of work being completed."
