No matter how hard Cathleen Smith tries to stop crying, the tears just can't seem to stop flowing ever since her parents gravestone was vandalized.
This grave is just one of several that were vandalized at St. Mary's Cemetery in Staten Island. Someone drew a gun on this monument and other offensive text on another. "Satan is my god" was written on a nearby mausoleum. Vandals also wrote graffiti on others.
Aaron Smith now tries to comfort his mother. With Mother's Day just around the corner, the vandalism is hitting his family especially hard.
Because of all the beer bottles now littering the cemetery, many suspect teenagers are behind this.
Cathleen said that while this may all be just a bad prank, her pain is all too real.
The cemetery said it is going to clean up all the graffiti.
A police report was filed with the 122 Precinct.
