LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Norwood Cemetery needs care

Published 1:50 pm Friday, August 13, 2021

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I grew up in Norwood, and have parents, brother and many other relatives buried in this cemetery.

For several years, my cousins and I have been concerned about the upkeep of the cemetery.

I have made many inquiries about this, however, nothing seems to change.

Since I now live in Florida, it is harder for me to take care of these graves. Some of them are really old.

It would be interesting to find out if others have the same concerns.

Probably the best alternative would be to have a group interested in setting up a care plan.

I am the first to volunteer.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I can be contacted at 910-540-7186.
