  • That is such a heartless thing to do, I was there at Eternal Hills today and cleaned my Dads headstone. Why hasn’t anyone fixed those doors so that this does not happen again? I went in there and also looked on the grounds, so heartbreaking. It’s in terrible condition out there. It’s all opened up for anyone to go in and break glass to get items out. These are such personal items, they should be under lock and key. Disappointed!
