MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -
The final resting place for more than
two dozen people at a Maui cemetery was disrupted after a collapse nearly a
year ago, and repairs still haven't been completed. Maui Memorial Park opened in 1964 on a slope
facing the West Maui Mountains, but when a portion of that hillside collapsed
last December, it left behind an unsettling sight for many visiting families.
Margie Porter visits her
Mom and Dad who are buried at Maui Memorial Park every week.
"It's a disgrace. It's very disrespectful. It just breaks my heart, regardless if it was
my parents or for anyone who is buried there and their families," said
Porter by phone from Pukalani, Maui.
What's troubling Porter
and many others who have loved ones at the cemetery is the sight of burial
vaults emerging from the hillside, exposed to the elements.
"They're all sticking
out of the hill," Porter described.
Officials say a portion of
the retaining wall collapsed last December, causing a rock and sand slide that
exposed several burial vaults, but never any caskets. Approximately 12 to 15 graves and nearly 20
urns were displaced.
"Once we removed the
deceased from the burial vault and relocated them, we left the vault in the
hillside because the contractor advised us to do that to keep the integrity of
the hillside until we could repair it," explained Steve Hawley, a consultant
with North Star Memorial Group, which oversees Maui Memorial Park.
Ten months later, Porter
wants to know what's taking so long.
"It should be fixed
right away, just because it's so – it breaks my heart to pass there every Saturday
and to see those caskets," said Porter.
Officials say soil
testing, engineering studies and permitting took time.
understand and that's why we're excited to get this finished and completed by
the end of the year. We just appreciate
very much their cooperation and their patience as we go through this project,"
According to officials,
the families impacted by the collapse have been very understanding and their
loved ones will be moved back to their final resting place once repairs are
"It does make me feel
a little bit better that the families know, but I'm pretty sure they could
cover that area up with a black tarp or something that you don't have to see
that every time you pass by because it really doesn't – it's not a nice looking
sight at all," Porter said.
