Spring Ground Repairs
This has been an exceptionally hard winter. You only need to drive a few blocks to see and feel the damage the weather has done to the streets of Omaha. The weather was also difficult for the cemeteries. We moved lots of snow on the grounds to get to locations to prepare and perform the interment of loved ones. Sometimes the ground was frozen, and other times, especially lately, the first few inches of thaw was present. Our operations crew laid out lots of 4’x8’ sheets of plywood for the primary route to reduce the tracking, which helped. But with performing hundreds of committals during the winter season, the grounds take a beating. We don’t like the current ground conditions, and we know families don’t like it either. As soon as weather permits, we will be reworking multiple areas of our 5 cemeteries, and replanting grass in time for the spring growth. We ask for your understanding as we work through the spring to get the cemeteries back to the condition which we are all accustomed.
As we move forward with our repairs, and as families prepare around their homes for spring, let’s especially keep in mind the thousands of Nebraskans impacted by the recent floods. Their lives have been greatly impacted, from loss of roads and bridges to loss of homes, and a few, loss of loved ones. When we step back and really look at our surroundings, it puts things in perspective. Let’s help them, with donations and with prayers.
