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.
