Cemetery managers meeting with family over Spongebob tombstone
OHIO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Managers of an Ohio cemetery who removed a fallen soldier's Spongebob Squarepants headstone are planning to meet with the soldier's family to work out a solution.
This is an update to a story we first brought you Monday morning.
Kimberly Walker was an Iraq War veteran who was killed in Colorado earlier this year.
She was a big fan of Spongebob Squarepants, so her family had a Spongebob headstone created for her grave.
But the next day, it was removed, even though the cemetery previously approved the design.
Now the family is distraught. They spent $13,000 on the headstone they say was perfect for Walker.
Cemetery managers will meet with the family today to find a solution.
