Although a little late, neglected cemetery receives sprucing up

2013-12-24 00:00

FOR the first time in two years, relatives of those buried in Mountain Rise Cemetery will finally be able to visit loved ones’ graves without wading through overgrown grass and weeds.

But Stefanie Addicott, who visits the grave of her father-in-law, said she was “disgusted” that the sprucing up of the cemetery was only being done so close to Christmas. Addicott was mugged at the cemetery earlier this year and struggled to escape through the waist-high grass. She said she would keep complaining until the cemetery was consistently maintained.
