LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Cemetery needs better care and grooming

I have been hearing many comments about how poorly Greenwood Cemetery was groomed for this Memorial Day weekend, and I wholeheartedly agree. The lawn was not mowed when my husband and I visited there the Thursday of Memorial Day weekend, much less raked of dead branches, tall grass clipped from around markers, etc.

When we went back Friday, it had been hastily mowed, with much of it skipped over. It is a very sad time to be visiting loved ones’ graves during Memorial Day weekend, but it is even more sad when you see the lack of respect shown by the caretakers of the cemetery. Either the management needs to be changed or learn to care more.
