Leave graves alone

Editor:

I read the article in last Thursdays Sun Advocate about someone or several people removing flowers and mementos from graves.

We buried the love of our lives, three years ago this July at Cliffview Cemetery in Price. It seems to me that most everyone that is buried there has relatives or friends who take great pride in decorating their loved ones graves. You will find beautiful flowers and bushes, engraved benches, large roads and a feeling of peacefulness.

Every morning when I lived in Price I walked up to the grave to sit or just meditate. I have planted bulbs, bushes, plants, and other articles that only would have meaning to our family. After Memorial Day, they were all gone, shepherds hooks and all! These had been there for three years. My oldest daughter chose to cut some roses from the garden after Memorial Day and take them to her cousin's grave only to find them missing. Anyone who knows anything about roses will know they would have only lasted a day or two.

One can only assume that someone must have a vendetta. Whomever they are they should stop this foolishness. They are not hurting our loved one in the cemetery, but they are hurting hundreds of us that love and think of him daily.
