Cemeteries can be dangerous places
MAY I say my heart was in my mouth after reading about your editor John’s close escape with a tree, I am so pleased he is okay.
It’s quite worrying about trees/branches falling. I would like to share my experience with your readers.
I recently went to pay my respects to my nana and when I got near nana’s grave I was gobsmacked at what lay ahead. It was cornered
off with red and white tape, it looked like a crime scene.
A gigantic tree had fell straight onto Nanna’s and other poor people’s grave. Horrendous sight, I was so upset. Obviously some had already been
cut off but it still was harrowing to see. I feel it’s about time the cemeteries out there had a tree surgeon to check some trees as they can tell if the bark is rotten and get the tree disposed of. They are so dangerous. I am so glad I wasn’t attending nana’s grave on the day this tree crashed down.
I wouldn’t be here to write this letter. I feel even though trees are picturesque they are very dangerous when they fall without warning. In future when I finally get this tree removed, when I am attending Nanna’s grave I will keep looking up, keep my wits about me and always be ready to run for the hills, hence the trees this is a worrying ongoing battle.
Be careful when visiting your loved ones, it’s dangerous in cemeteries.
