They damaged the tomb of Martín Elías again and his widow can’t stand it anymore

Outraged, tired, furious and rightly so, this is Dayana Jaimes, the widow of Martín Elías, with the new problem that she has to solve regarding the grave of the deceased vallenato singer, who left this shot on April 14, 2017 after a car accident.

The artist is still in the memory of all his followers, thanks to the great musical repertoire that still plays on radio stations and nightclubs throughout Colombia.

The tomb of Martín Elías has become a tourist site in the Jardines del Ecce Homo Cemetery in the city of Valledupar. The singer was in the prime of his career when he passed away and said fame is still preserved, issue that attracts many tourists to this place to take photos in the space where the remains of the vallenatero rest.

This would not have any problem if people were careful with the space, something that does not happen because Jaimes herself has seen how people forget that they are in a sacred place in order to take the best memory of their idol.

“Oh, you don’t know the anger and disagreement I have with all this that happened with Martín’s grave, because it is not the first time it has happened. And really, the lack of culture of some people has no name. I tell you this because on many occasions that I have been there I have seen how people arrive and sit on the edge of the grave to take the super photo. or the superselfie and that should not be done. They even mount the children in the grave, they don’t have to do that, ”declares the indignant widow.

As Jaimes herself showed, the photo that was at the head of Martín’s tomb, between the two giant vases, was completely destroyed because of some fans who went too far and broke it, without even announcing the damage.

They left the pieces on the marble, a scene that Dayana verified with her own eyes and generated her total sadness and anger, since she already had her special flowers ready to decorate the grave, which today she is going to have to reconsider, because she is tired of this matter repeats itself.

“With everything that happened, I have to reconsider everything because they shared the photo of him, that I always wanted to have it that way because I liked that photo, it seemed super cute to me. But I see that people’s desire is for that photo to appear when they go and visit the grave, so I’m going to have to reconsider that issue and it will be to remove the photodo not put photos, just leave the two vases and nothing else, ”added Jaimes.

Now, the problem of the widow of Martín Elías goes beyond whether or not to fix the tomb, because as she has said, it is a recurring issue that she herself has to pay for, since none of those who have damaged anything the tomb has come close to paying for the costs of remodeling or rebuilding.

So, one of the options is to leave the damage alone and hope that people will raise awareness by seeing the tomb in that condition, but that would create another headache for the vallenata.

“This is a difficult situation because if I leave the grave… Look what happened to Kaleth, to Migue with Kaleth’s grave, it was damaged many times and he decided to leave it like that, I don’t know if they fixed it… So, If I leave Martín’s grave like this, they say that I forgot about him, that the grave is abandoned, what a whistle, what a flute, that nobody wanted it, that nobody wants it, anyway… If I send it to be fixed, the same thing may happen and no one will go out to pay for the grave, no one, because people do the damage and leave”, says Dayana.

Finally, the widow of Martín Elías urges all fans of the singer to please be measured with their presence at the grave, as it is a sacred place where there should be no room for photos, videos, much less invasions. in said place. “If you want to take a picture, take it standing up, please understand, more respect,” she added.
