Unhappy with cemetery

GEORGETOWN — Editor:

The reason I am writing this letter is because I am very dissatisfied the way they are keeping the Mount Hope Cemetery in Covington, Ind.

I went over there to put the flowers, American flag, wreath and a grave blanket saddle on a headstone and grave.

The next time I went over there, they were stolen.

After they had finished mowing, I had to sweep the dead grass off of a war plaque and pull the weeds around it.

I had to do the same thing to my uncle’s.

I reported it to the Covington police, but they didn’t do a thing about it.

I think they should be more careful and do it right
