The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Please give back my cross


I went over to the cemetery today (May 27) and saw that the cross, the flag, and the flowers I had put at my husband’s grave were all gone.

I talked to the man from the Legion about it and he told me to call the number posted on the door for the Odd Fellows. I called him and here is what he said:

They don’t remove anything until after Memorial Day. However, every year around this time, things are stolen from the graves, sometimes even flowers that have been planted in the ground.

I would like to leave a message for whoever took these items of mine. Please return the cross. The flower and the flag can be replaced, but the cross was something my son made for me to put there! So please return the cross! If you leave it near the big flags, I will find it.
