Cemetery becomes a cause for woman

Roanoke Times - Roanoke,VA,USA

COYNER SPRINGS -- Shebri Stacy didn't know where her father was buried until she visited the Roanoke municipal cemetery at Coyner Springs in Botetourt ...

Reading about the municipal cemetery is heartbreaking, mainly because most people in the city have little or no knowledge about a plot for people whose families do not claim the body.
It's a shame we have to have any burial ground that's so neglected, however. Wouldn't cremation be a better idea?

why can't u ask for volenteers to help clean and get plants donated to the cause. i think it's such a shame that their resting place doesn't seem to matter. it bothers me that they don't care. need to post papers around the county and city for volenteers.
