Letter: Janie Isley Thorne
Plant flowers on grave

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I have read several letters recently regarding the theft of flowers from Roselawn Cemetery. This is not anything new.

My first husband died on Jan. 31, 1985. When he was buried, I saved several of the prettier artificial flowers to put on the grave later. They were always stolen.

I finally quit putting arrangements on the grave and started purchasing stemmed flowers and planting them on the grave. They were never disturbed. Guess they didn’t cost enough to bother with, but they still looked good on the grave. Just a thought for others who may want to try this.
