Re: Seeking advice on Cemetery Visits
- View SourceThanks Rhet,
I really like the idea about the small hole in the ground for a base. That
would also give custodians, assuming they have such, an idea that it
should be there. That should also keep it from blowing away in regular
storms. I'm from Alabama and we have hurricanes and tornadoes often.
Not much can help during those.
I did try it last night and determined that my jar might need to have a
wider mouth. I was able to get forty small pieces of paper in there
nice and neat. When you stick one finger in there and just sorta pull
it out you get a flyer, but my wife said it might be difficult for an
older person to do that.
I'm glad yall like the idea. I'm going to drop off about four of five next
week. I'll let yall know if it was worth the trouble.
Diggin up bones,

I would suggest leaving them on the ground next to the headstone rather
than on top of it. It could so easily blow off and break and then you
would have no notes and unsafe broken glass lying around. You might want
to dig a round hole the size of the jar and about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep to
sit it in so it will be steady. Other than that I think you have a
really good idea. Rhet
- View SourceReally like your idea! Think I'll do something like that for the family
cemetery at Grimesland, NC, and Avon.
