Cemeteries
Comments: Please do not harm the cemeteries - there is nothing worth disturbing the dead for.
I help conserve & repair gravestones - trust me, there are people who have family in these places - have you checked your family history to see?

Cemeteries represent so much history in a community - they also reflect the people, the culture of the area. These are not 'disposable' places.

Work with, work around these sacred places, but please don't disturb them. They established the community where you live. They deserve peace.
Thank you.
