CEMETERY: Story, waterline help appreciated

Thank you, Mandi Bateman, for the front page article about the need for a new waterline in the Old Part of Grandview Cemetery. I donated to the fund as I have 14 relatives buried there, including my late husband, Lee. I will be buried there beside him when my time comes.

Two of my dadís brothers are buried there. Ebon Lannigan died in 1932 from the flu while working as a U.S. Border Patrolman. Cecil Lannigan was in the Signal Corps of the U.S. Army in World War II, killed in Italy two days after Anzio. His body was returned after the war.

I would pray that the city and county could help in some way, maybe donating materials, equipment, or labor to replace this waterline. Being the OLD part of the cemetery there are probably few living relatives in the area to make donations.

God Bless Jim Thompson and anyone who volunteers help or money. We do not want to visit those who have gone before us and be ashamed of their final resting place
