This past September my dad and I cleaned up a cemetery. Just the two of us. It was wonderful. We have plenty left to do of course, but seeing as the cemetery is far from where I live... 1200 miles give or take... I won't be able to get there for a little while.
If anyone gets the opportunity to do so, clean up a cemetery. The dead will thank you.
Here are some before and after pics. There are some on findagrave that predate even my photos. Go take a look.
|yes that's the same stone|
|After. Look at all of that back there!!|
|There's actually a stone barely sticking out to the right of this one|
|We found about six stones we didn't see on our first trip.|
|See anything? There's a tombstone in there.|
Next time I would like to uncover the stones. Get rid of more branches and debris. Heck if I could dig up bodies to do an anthropological analysis on them I would. ... ... ... That wouldn't be illegal would it?
