Appearance of cemeteries must improve

Once again, Memorial Day is almost upon us, and I’d like to take a moment to comment on the conditions that Prospect Hill and Ferndale cemeteries are in. I’ve seen patchwork mowing, trees fallen on gravesites and stones lying helter-skelter everywhere.

I truly find it hard to believe this is what is meant by perpetual care. Sadly, the residents there are unable to voice their concerns.

If you have family buried there, please call the cemeteries and express your displeasure. I really don’t think your ancestors (or mine) deserve this.
