Letter to the Editor: Cemetery ordinance not popular with townsfolk


April 19, 2018

To the Editor:

Thank you Jill [Connolly] for your wonderful letter. You are so right. The cemetery is so lonely and forgotten looking – no flowers or fixed decorations, etc., the things that were put there with love and respect for the loved ones we have laid to rest there. Many local towns have cemeteries that have beautiful flowers all the time; it shows people care.

Odessa, well it is bare and lonely looking, like no one is remembered. Whoever took that right away is an uncaring person. This new ordinance put in place is wrong. The taxpayers expect that money to be used for a meaningful purpose.

Let the people honor their loved ones in the way they choose without having to have it taken and discarded. Let’s be sympathetic and practical in what is chosen to be done.
