Graceland Cemetery in terrible condition

Posted: Updated:

To The Herald-Whig:

I am writing this letter in regards to the condition of Graceland Cemetery at 36th and Maine. Our family has four family members buried in that cemetery. My grandfather bought plots in 1936.

The windstorm was months ago, but the trees that have fallen and even an uprooted tree are still there. Luckily our family members missed the trees falling on their graves by about five feet, but what about the graves that are under the trees? Those grave sites are old and no one is around to maintain them any more. Don't we owe that much to the deceased to keep up their surroundings? Do we live in a world that just doesn't care any more?
