I just wont to let everyone know who has family buried in this cemetery needs to go check on things they have put on their loved one graves. I went out there today to put flowers on my grandma's grave and when I got there it was a sign asking people not to put flowers out because of mowing season. When I got to where my grandma is buried a stand that I had put out was broke and thrown behind someone else grave. I always tried to pick up peoples flowers that have fell over and put them back up. These people that are cutting grass do not care. They have broken solar lights that are beside graves, and I tried my best to stand them back up. I just want people to know that this is going on. To the ones that are mowing the cemetery i think you are very disrespectful people. Many people have loved ones there and you have no right to run over stuff just because it may not be your family's grave. You should have respect for every grave there or you have no business being there.

Well, steph don't you start mowing the grass out there, then you could guard your flowers and lights! Last time I checked, they don't have guard. Flowers and lights are a waste of money. Not to mention subject to wind, weather and thieves. You should give to childrens home or hospital, or you could make a donation to the cemetary, in your grandma's name. That way her name and influence would be felt by someone who needs help and can't help themself.
Besides people mowing cemetary probably don't get paid to move, and replace your flowers.

Once you leave the cemetary it's like, if its there the next time your there, your lucky.
One more thing you probably don't know, since the trustees of the cemetary, and church make the rules, you have to abide by them.

I dont know who is the caretaker out there I wish i did. To the person midway. I know that wind and many diff.other thing could happen but I dont thing its right for the ones cutting the grass to just broke people stuff and you can tell it was done by a weedeater. Which is wrong. My grandma used to take care of it a long time ago and we never did anything like this to the things people have but on the graves. I did not but this on here to argue with people just wont the ones that have loved one out there to be made ware of what was going on.

Well yeah it is a crying shame how stuff is starting to go on there. Well see this is what makes me so angry my grandfathers MILITARY marker is gone..Been there since "87" and the ones over the cemetary says they think it was knocked in someone elses grave when they were buried well if they were a little more CAREFUL this wouldnt of happened and another thing they have someone elses marker where my grandmothers spot is they are not actually buried there but there marker is placed there and they wont even have it moved my grandmother has to get ahold of this persons family and get them to have it moved. NOW what kinda of crap is that.I think they are very disrespectful and believe me I think we could get a good respectful crew up to take care of this cemetary and by the way my grandmother does donate to this church for the up keeping of the cemetary so where is her money going if it is getting this BAD out there. Thanks Steph for looking out for our loved ones there.
