To the editor:
My breath, heartbeat and discouragement are being felt. Ten days before Memorial Day, I went and spoke with the Catholic Cemetery caretaker. There are parts which need a lot of tending to, including the area where our son is laid to rest with neighboring Catholics. I was told the area would be taken care of, right after Memorial Day. It is sandy, no grass, but weeds. He'd thrown in grass seed before Memorial Day, but with the rain and wind, it all landed in the flowers. Memorial Day is an unwritten day, where everyone is out making the grave sight of their loved one, so beautiful and peaceful. There is no reason why it has to look so terribly awful. Have some pride in your work. We want to take pride in our little plot, where our son is.
