I am sick of dogs running all over this cemetary. They urinate and deficate where ever they want. I have complained several times and nothing is done. I am upset regarding my sisters burial plot. Someone within the last month has been buried next to her. They moved her headstone, they have dug into her plot. I complained at the beginning of May, 2011 and was promised that it would be fixed by the end of May. As of today, May 23, 2011 her plot is still totally destroyed. If nothing is done by the end of this month, I will be calling Contact 6, my alderman and any and everyone that can and will do something about this. This is a TOTAL DISGRACE to my Sister and my family.\r\n\r\nThere has been nothing but problems since the new owners took over.\r\n\r\nIf I could I would move my entire family elsewhere.\r\n\r\n\r\nJudy Schlueter

I'm 13 years old. My great grandmother passed away on July 8, 2009 and her husband died in winter of 1994. I know where their grave is, because I visit it constantly. When I learned that my great grandparents on the other side of my family were buried there in the 80's, I went to the front desk to ask for help finding the gravesites. The woman at the front desk laughed, and said I was too young to be alone in a cemetery. When I pressed on that I wanted to find the graves, she came out with a lollipop and said I could have it if I stopped asking and went home. I got so aggravated I went and looked for the graves myself and the woman kept following me with her lollipop offer. Eventually, I found the graves. I am so angry that the woman can't take a 13 year old seriously when she wants to find her family. What kind of people are these??

Pros: My great gparent generation is there and I visit often

Cons: The people are rude, and they don't take me seriously.

I agree with TANK. They want to sell you their cheap, ugly flowers at a huge markup. There are always some new ""rules"" we don't know about that outlaw our floral arrangements. My flowers kept disappearing as well. When I inquired about some maintenance to a grave (we paid for perpetual care), they told me it would cost hundreds to fix. The old owners would have fixed it because it was a church and they honored their contracts. I wouldn't be buried here at all if it were not for my family. I can't stand these new owners!

Pros: My whole family is there

Cons: This place is all about greed

My Father has found his finale resting place there and everything was fine until the new owners took over. Everytime i go there i find that the new owners pulled off all the flowers i put on his gravesite. Thats very upsetting to me. What do they think their accomplishing. All their doing is getting everyone mad. It should be a peacefull time when i go there, instead i leave angry and sick to find they removed my flowers again. Its all about the money. They want you to buy the flowers from them.
