The organizer of a fund to assist the family of a recent suicide victim from Schenectady High School is praising an Albany monument company for donating the 14-year-old's gravestone.Links: Grace Memorials Inc. and Century Monument Co.
Ted Burek, owner of Grace Memorials, said he doesn't want attention for such deeds. It's not something he does very often, unless the story touches him.
His company in Rensselaer, Century Monument, donated a stone in 1993 for an 8-year-old Troy girl, Mei-Ling White, who was found murdered near her home four years earlier.
