Jo Corbett Weeks from Malvern, Worcestershire, U.K., was facing every parent’s worst nightmare. She had lost her 4-year-old son, and now a local family had raised an issue regarding a touching tribute that she had arranged in his memory. What’s more, the local council’s response to the insensitive complaint left her in a state of disbelief.

Maximus James Corbett-Gardener was only four-years-old when he passed away in 2013. His death was caused by complications resulting from his severe epilepsy. Max suffered from the debilitating illness throughout his short life and also developed dystonia – a muscle disorder.

Following Max’s death, Jo decided to erect a memorial at his graveside to commemorate her little boy’s life. After saving up money from her job at a local bar, the proud parent had enough funds to afford a fitting tribute. Poignantly, the memorial would be ready just in time for what would have been Max’s seventh birthday.
