Greetings:A couple years ago,Mine any spelling I am not a morning person!.I wrote about a drug dealer tearing up a catholic cemetery.Well the section of cemetery is still not fixed and they do not care evidently.Even though I am heathen and proud that is crossing the line.I think that those families should sue!The reason being it is perpetual care not I do not give a @##$5.What do you think uncle AZRAEL would say of course not in words?Any input would be appreciated.AMORTE & Bonuit Twilightmystic

Desecration is always an ugly thing. I hate to hear about things like that even though it is rather common. Report the vandalism yourself if no one is fixing the problem. I do if I find anything amiss. I have left notes at the caretakers offices and comment boxes. I also bring a trash bag in my backpack just in case since I find a lot of trash where people hang out in the darker corners. Someone has to speak up when a wrong is done and often I find others unwilling to say anything because they don't want the hassle. I think any guardian of the Dead, be it a family member who has crossed, or Azrael himself would find any desecration as an insult to the House.

We have that same issue at one of the older cemeteries in my area. This particular burial ground contains the graves of our town's founders, and on a personal note, the remains of my husband's entire family (it will be my resting place as well). The scale of the defacement is astounding, gravestones are toppled, monuments scored and the grounds themselves damaged. There have been articles in the local papers about this, and I have spoken to the caretakers myself. Seems that there is some monetary reasons that the repairs are not being affected. This is the WORST sort of neglect and disrespect for the dead. Oddly enough, one of the other cemeteries in the area (owned by the same association) has ZERO defacement. It is a mucn newer cemetery, and home to many of the more affluent residents of town. This is disgusting, and very disturbing. That is going to be my home, and it would be nice to know that my grave will remain safe.  :cussing:

Here too.  :cussing:  My favorite cemetery (for it's beauty and historical significance as well as personal reasons) has a lot of damage. Toppled headstones, flowers and floral arrangements either being stolen or messed with, trash and especially beer bottles everywhere! It's disgusting. The caretaker is a nice man but money for repairs and security guards (they have one now that locks the gates and notes any disturbances) is in short supply. I bring a trash bag when I go walking anywhere but it fills up fast when I walk the cemetery. I only wish I had money enough to reserve myself a place there. It always makes me so sad to hear about this kind of vandalism since it hits home deep in my heart. I wouldn't want my resting place littered with trash and people destroying property. Headstones are expensive! I would think no one would want that. Wherever I tread I do so lightly and with respect, even places I don't like. That's the core of it. It's the epitome of disrespect to vandalize a sacred place of peace, in my opinion.

Alas, that is the case out here in the middle-of nowhere Oregon, too.  Lots of crap in the resting places, which I too pick up, as well as leave offerings to the saddest of graves; those of the poor who can't even afford a headstone, slaves, and unknown people who don't even have the date of passage on the stone, just "unknown." I do feel the deep peace of Azrael there, as small and simple as they are. rip  :rose:  rip

That is beautiful Russalka!  :rose:  I have spent some of my most peaceful moments in small, tucked away burial grounds.

:rose: Thank you, my Pale Sister. :rose: There is a Cat-Lick cemetery out here that has a tombstone for all the children "killed" by abortions, but nothing for any of the women who died because of illegal abortions.  I'm thinking of doing an instillation there honoring the women, and I'll take a picture of it before the religious extremists r.i.p. (ha) it down. :headbang:
