POMONA, Calif. -- Officials are apologizing to a Pomona woman for erecting other people's headstone above her parents' grave at the Riverside National Cemetery.

She brought a stuffed reindeer for her mom, who would have been 81, and a small pumpkin and an American flag for her dad, a World War II veteran.
