Thanks for taking the steps needed to clean up the cemetaries

Everyone involved knows how hard it is to lose someone and the feeling of needing to do something to remember them by

I would like to thank the City of Campbell River, the Parks Department and those behind the scenes (you know who you are) that have taken the steps needed to clean up the two cemeteries in the city. You all deserve to be congratulated on a job well done. Everyone involved knows how hard it is to lose someone and the feeling of needing to do something to remember them by. Over the course of years this has taken many different shapes and styles in the cemeteries here in town and has left unintentionly  a safety concern for city staff, funeral home workers and the general public. I am sure other towns and cities are faced with the same problem. Campbell River has taken the lead and will enforce its bylaws and bring ours up to the standard and safety it deserves. A place where all can go to be close to the ones they lost without the look of clutter and disarray as it is now in. I am sure these other towns and cities will take notice of what the city will be doing, how it is being done and will in some way follow suit. I too will be keeping an eye on the process as well and will hold the city accountable that it follows though what it has said it will do. A place of peace and beauty for those we left in care of to the city. Thank you again to all.
