2014.12.24 Deb Tremaine: Oak Grove Cemetery

Recently I traveled to Oak Grove Cemetery to place Christmas grave blankets on family plots. I could not believe the way the place looked. It reminded me of a long forgotten place. My family is buried there and I’m ashamed that their final resting place is at that cemetery.

My husband and I took a rake and shovel and wheelbarrow and cleaned around the family plots.

Come on, Morenci, aren't you ashamed of the shape of the cemetery? We saw a tree down on some graves and it just looked so sad.
