Theft at cemetery          Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

I am submitting this letter in reference to a recent theft from my father's headstone. My mother put flowers on my father's grave with the seasons. She had taken a spray of roses that she arranged in his clamp on the stone bracket. She took them out and placed them on his grave, and when she went back on Saturday they were gone.

I think that if people cannot afford to put flowers on their family's graves, then do not steal from the people who do. I find this very rude and disrespectful to my mother and to my father. You know who you are and I would be ashamed to think that I had to steal another person's flowers so that I had some for my family members' graves. And if it is the young people in your town, then I think that they need to find something else to do than to steal someone's flowers.

Thank you,

Loralee McCray
