On Dec. 25 I drove 65 miles in the rain to decorate my dad's grave for the holidays. Upon my arrival at the Grand Praire Cemetery I noticed the big old tree had fallen down.
I got out of my vehicle, the flowers in hand. To my surprise the tree had been cut down. It had fallen into the cemetery. I started looking for my dad's grave in all the rubble. I had to remove two medium-size long branches and wipe the stone off before I put my flowers on it.
1 don't know who cut this tree down. But the least they could have done was clean it up a little with knowing people would be decorating the graves for the holidays.
I know this is just a little country cemetery, but it's always been very well cared for. I was just a little shocked to see it in such a mess. Thanks for listening.
