I was saddened and upset when I went to Hope Cemetery to my family’s grave stone and markers. My whole family is buried there. We planted flowers on Thursday and went back on Memorial Day.
On Memorial Day, of all days, the cemetery was disgusting! This is Hope Cemetery for heaven’s sake, one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
My family is on the left side — Milne monument. Sure, the front of the cemetery and those monuments we mowed. But what about the other stones whose families went there to pay honor, respect and love. What about the visitors to the cemetery who went there to see just how beautiful it is. Not!
Shame on the City of Barre, the Mayor and the Cemetery Commission.
