Another CEO pushing his FAT wallet around the community with no concern for family ethics.

His children "shouldn't have to play so close to a cemetery."

Maybe he had better hope that someone plays around his grave so that he won't be completely forgotten in his afterlife. Move a cemetery,indeed and how would you like someone to uproot your ancestors, parents, or maybe a lost child????? Seems to me your priorities could use a little polish, and maybe your children could use a lesson in family history, pride, and appreciation for the ancestors who made it possible for them to play.

If he doesn't want the cemetary on his property then he should buy another piece of property. The cemetary was there when he first looked at it obviously and has a fence around it so his kids should not be in it playing. I can't believe how terrible things have become that some people think they don't have to honor the past. Yes this property comes with a cemetary and there are family members of the people buried there that should be able to access that cemetary anytime they choose.

Find another piece of land!!!

This man is pathetic. How old are his kids. The very young don't comprehend death. The older kids(age 6+) usually view death in a nice way (angels, heaven, and happiness...). I do believe that this man is afraid of death. He has to face it his money can't buy immortality.
