State of the cemetery sad

My husband was born and raised in Superior. He no longer lives there, but, has a strong attachment to the community. Some of his relatives and, also, our baby son are buried in the Fairview cemetery.

For the last 40 years or more, we have been tending to the cleaning of the family plots. The cemetery, until about three years ago, was kept up a little bit. At least the worse of the weeds would be cut around the graves. This year, you could not even see some graves for the three foot weeds growing around them. Truck tire marks were noted in the burial area, and it’s a miracle the headstones were not run over. That, in itself, is a sad fact; but, what is really shameful is the neglect of the veteran’s graves in that section of the cemetery. For some, the headstone is barely visible. These are men who gave up their lives to keep us free.

Wake up Superior! Where is your civic pride? Have you totally lost respect for the pioneers and soldiers of your community? Where are the VFW American Legion, Boy Scouts and young people of the community? Most of all, I would like this to be a wake up call for the mayor and city council.
Thank you for your time.
