As congregation members, we become stewards of these sacred grounds. As families, we want the cemetery where our loved ones are buried to look lovingly tended. A debt of gratitude is owed to those who volunteer their time and provide funds to ensure the respectful maintenance of our local cemeteries. Most of us rarely, if ever, think of the challenges facing our cemeteries. Do we have any idea what it takes or how much it costs just to keep the grounds looking cared for? Often a fee is charged for “perpetual care” at the time of purchase of the burial plot, but what does that mean and how can it possibly cover both maintenance and repairs (that will likely be necessary) into perpetuity? So what is happening in the PLL’s four cemeteries?
