Jim Farehnbruch said he spends much of his time these days visiting the grave of his late wife Judy at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Saginaw.

“This is just horrible to have your wife’s grave destroyed like this,” Farehnbruch said.

He said losing the love of his life has been emotional and painful, even five years later.

“I couldn’t sleep the last couple of nights,” Farehnbruch said.

But on Wednesday, that pain was made much worse when he visited his wife's grave and saw the muddy mess that had been made of her gravesite.

“I can’t let my wife rest like that,” Farehnbruch said.

It appears maintenance crews for the cemetery drove over the grave site to finish another one close by, leaving behind tire tracks and a muddy mess.

The sight brought Farehnbruch to tears.

 “A terrible thing. And I hope others don’t suffer through this,” Farehnbruch said.

Farehnbruch said he immediately called management to clean up the site.

“I’m waiting for the day when I can be with the lord and her,” Farehnbruch said.

He said he's been getting the run around.

TV5 took our tough questions to management at St. Andrew’s Cemetery on Gratiot Road.

Only a few hours after TV5’s call, crews at Mt. Olivet Cemetery cleaning up the mess.

“I can’t thank TV5 enough,” Farehnbruch said. “I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.”
