Let them rest in peace
It has been brought to my attention someone took seasonal decorations of chrysanthemum flowers and scarecrows off of a grave at the Warrensburg Cemetery.
I know many graves there host personal memorabilia and decorations.
To the person or group of individuals who took the decorations off the late George Nemec's grave, I say, "How dare you?" Do we have to now start a vigilant patrol of our cemeteries?
