STX CEMETERY UPKEEP IS 'SAD,' READER SAYS

Dear Source,
I don't know if you are aware of the cemetery situation on St. Croix. There is no maintenance of the graves whatsoeverat the cemeteries, which are maintained by the Department of Public Works.
What I mean is that the family members must come to cut the grass and clean the graves around the tomb. If you wait a long time before going to clean the graves of your loved ones, you will not be able to find the grave. It will be covered or badly surrounded by grass.
You can always find people around the cemetery that are willing to clean. But of course you must pay them. My father is buried in St. Croix and I live in the States. I must find someone to constantly go and clean around my dad’s grave and I must pay for this service rendered.
This is very sad. I have never seen such a thing until my relatives and friends mailed me pictures.
