If you are putting flowers on the graves, especially the ones that attach to the top of the gravestones, to please put the name on the bottom of the flowers so that the committee knows where to put it if it gets blown off. If it doesn’t have a name on it and it gets blown off, you may look for it in the plastic bin in the graveyard. ~G.A. Sidden, Cemetery Chairperson.
