Mementoes removed

Dear Editor:

As I went to visit my husband’s grave after only a week since last there, I found all the mementoes and flowers had been taken out. They have been there for three years, some people a lot longer.

These were placed in a pile, some broken and some no longer even there.

It would have been nice if there had been a notice in the mail so we could have taken the things that mean something to us.

I only saw a very small notice on the fence for the first time when I went up only because the stuff was all gone and I don’t use that gate.

It stated nothing is to be there from April to November.

I think this was very disrespectful to everyone.

Shame on you, Summerland.

Donna Waddington

Summerland.
