My concern is that the last three times I have put flowers on the grave, they have been stolen. The last time in less than two weeks. I would hate to quit decorating graves out there because the grave sites are not being monitored so this will quit happening. I have discussed this with both the office and the groundskeeper. My flowers are not blowing off. When I come out to change them if they have not already been stolen it is all I can do to get them out. I'm very disappointed with this. It is very costly to put flowers on the grave and then 2 weeks later go out and they are gone.
This was a beautiful garden at one time, but with the latest owners, the upkeep has really gone down.
Many of the graves need filling, and the memorial stones need leveling. I recently visited the graves of my family members, and was very disappointed to find that they were not keeping the grounds as they once were.
There are not enough people hired for enough time, to really take care of the garden as it should be.
I have also been saddened, that the moseleum has been added, in front, and foremost. In the beginning, there was no moseleum, and there should have been a special place for it, other than the front most part. This takes away from the peaceful beauty of the garden itself. The front corner, where the "Little" family has "bought" the place, just as you enter, to put their own private moseleum, too, is very untasteful, and has ruined the look of the garden.
None of these things were allowed or available when we bought our lots many years ago. Out first chid was buried there in 1960, and at that time, it was well cared for, and managed well.
I would like to see the garden restored to it's original beauty, and no more moseleums added. Also that much better care given to the grave markers, and filling in of the grounds.
