Did anyone go to the cemetery and help with cleanup?
I had been several days before and did not make it on Saturday so I am wondering.
As of right now..... No one met me over there and the grass is really high!

I believe that Howard Hunter's son lives in the trailer at the cemetery.

I am going to try to go back and do some more. My husband had to take his weed eater to the shop. That is the only way to even make a path to the graves. I wish that the lady who organized it before would contact the newspaper again and make the public aware so it can be cleaned up really good before winter.

I just came home from the pet cemetery. My husband is 6 feet tall and the grass came up to his shoulders. Some people are going down and mowing there loved ones graves but there are many many more that really need it. If this is not taken care up before winter it will be worse come next spring. I tried to find the phone number of the lady who contacted the newspaper last time and make the public aware of it. Please if someone has any idea on what to do please let me know. We cleaned our graves and our neighbors graves but so much more need to be done.

A lot of people who go to the J. L Bowling cemetery to decorate for Christmas are going to be very shocked. The tall grass has turned brown and is laying on the tops of many of the graves making it impossible for the markers to be found. This is a shame.

I don't know the story of how this Huntet guy came into ownership of the cemetery, but my sister & I went there yesterday & today to find our 7 of 8 lots to put flowers. To our dismay, we had to go get a weed eater & rake. As we found them, we discovered that the cement bench we purchased for our mother to set at the lots, was no longer there.
I did notice the left (human) side was kept up, why not the right side? When my mother purchased the lots, there was no lathing in the contract about us having to mow them. She purchased the lots with the understanding that they would be taken care of by the business.

The parts that you see mowed are being mowed by volunteers and owners. When my husband and I go we mow our lots and our neighbors lots. I do not know what is going to happen. I just noticed that a lot of posts on this topic have been removed. I wonder what is up with that.

People need to go to the pet cemetery and clean up. It is really bad in certain areas that have not been mowed.

Lets lay the blame where it belongs.Overbearing government.Regardless of who formerly owed back taxes and left it to an unassuming heir the fact remains that this damn government could care less about you or me and the loved ones albeit human or pets lying there with their graves unattended.They could have compromised by allowing the caretaker to remain in business while paying a percentage to cover the back taxes.But being the evil shyts they are they're more concerned about letting it sit unattented so the caretaker cant earn a living.Its governments duty to help its citizens not hinder them.Doesnt the constitution grant one the right to pursuit of happiness?

To whoever the person was that he let them make payments, that's why he's in financial debt . He needs all his money , not payments. Borrow the money and pay your bills!!!!!!

That's odd.He kept it mowed for years after it was left to him in heirship until government got involved.Didnt seem like a piece of shit to me.Didnt someone tell you on this or another thread that he was forbidden to do any work there. Why do you refuse to accept it? Sounds like a personal problem of your making.You spit,fume,and verbally abuse the mans reputation all the while working yourself into a frenzy that shows you're a helluva lot more affected than he is by it all.Might wanna be careful about libel or he'll end up with the money to pay those back taxes.And all it takes is a lawyer to find out who you are and they can do so.I'd let it go if I were you.
