Parents and Grandparents - watch your children! Please be sure to teach them about the dangers of old tombstones. This is a very sad but true story of a young boy killed by an older tombstone when it fell on him.
Every year hundreds of people are injured and killed by older tombstones that have fallen into disrepair. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the responsibility of the cemetery to maintain these stones! It is up to the families of the deceased.
Don't let your children push or lean against tombstones. Don't let them play hide and seek. We've all done it but we need to think about it and try to prevent such tragedies from happening
