This is a letter from Watson & Sons Funeral Home:
Due to recent complaints and in an effort for maintenance personnel to improve the appearance of Oaklawn Memorial Park, management will begin strictly enforcing the rules and regulations regarding the decoration of cemetery lots. It is our goal to ensure that the cemetery is neat, clean and respectful for our community.
The placing of vases, toys, metal designs, ornaments, and similar articles upon lots are not permitted. We kindly ask that such items be removed.
Artificial flowers or real flowers are permitted on monuments containing a receptacle.
The deadline for the removal of all unapproved items will be August 1st, 2018.
After that date, any unapproved items will be removed and discarded by cemetery personnel.
Thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter.
