After Russell died I was in so much pain; I could hardly make it through the days and nights. I walked around feeling numb inside. My heart was broken, and now finding we could not bury our son.

We couldn’t find anything about the burial plans until we saw it in the paper. Kevin had a homosexual professor at Maryville college to write the gay obituary. This hurt Lowell and I, and our whole family. It was disgusting and painful!

We were told he had a will and we could not have any say about his funeral. This turned out to be one of Kevin’s and his parent’s lies. When we went to the funeral home, we couldn’t find Russell. We were told he wasn’t prepared for viewing. Oh, how painful this was to know we couldn’t even see our son to say goodbye.

The funeral home was not very nice to us. I can just imagine the lies that were told to the funeral home. We insisted being able to see him. They said he was in a dark room; but they would bring him out. He could not be opened they told us; we could have five minutes with him. Can you just imagine this???.

This is why I believe Sandra Olive was controlling the funeral home people. This was hard to grasp how anyone would deprive parents their farewell to their son and give them five minutes with him.

When they brought that awful pine box out; I actually thought I was going to die right there. I leaned over the box that contained my son that I brought into this world; nurtured and loved him all his life. I never want to feel that pain again.

The person who destroys him; and now is completely controlling his burial. All this is because we as Russell’s parents did not accept his lifestyle. This love we have for Russell would not allow us to accept this destructive lifestyle that actually killed him.

Two weeks after Russell died; I decided I had to have some answers. We were told through our other son; (who Kevin had told lies to) that he had a heart attack. I went to the funeral home and asked to see the papers that allowed Russell to be buried; and us not having any say over it.

A volunteer pulled his file. I was devastated at what I saw. There was no papers in his file giving the funeral home permission to let Kevin and his family bury Russell.

This was devastating to find these things. All I saw in the file was the cheap funeral and the shipping cost. At the top of the file folder was a business card of Sandra Olive; (Kevin’s lawyer mother)she was running the show.

She along with the funeral home violated the law burying our son without legal documents to show they had a right to bury him. Later on in a legal case; we were to find out the will had been forged. This was after his burial; so naturally it would not be in his file.

There was so much manipulation to get Russell buried without us being involved. He is buried in a woods where even his burial is controlled by some really evil people. (Read my posts about all they have done to us and his burial site).

We have went through so much with the death and burial of our beloved son. It is hard to realize that people can be so evil and hurtful. The homosexual lifestyle is so evil and it affects so many people and their families. It has been devastating to our family.

I was so mad at all that happened at the funeral home and what I found out. I went to the head of Rose funeral home with what I found out. He was very upset that the file was shown to me. I think it was very legal that I was shown this.

Talking to this man at the top; I got the feeling he was afraid of Sandra Olive. She uses her position as a lawyer to control everything. She degraded us to our lawyers we hired in Baltimore to get Russell moved to a cemetery where he would be taken care of.

This too will be taken care of; God is in Charge!
