I recently returned to Crestview and stopped by the Live Oak Park Memorial Cemetery on North Avenue to pay respects to family members' grave sites.
I was shocked to find weeds and grass everywhere.
Even Robert Sikes' grave is full of weeds. I contacted relatives, who said that when they contact the main office they tell them they are "short staffed" or "there is no problem."
Many prominent families are buried there, and I am just still in shock. Names such as Enzor, Thigpen, Waters, Sikes — all the prominent families at the local and state level as I was growing up.
Someone should check into the perpetual care. I am scared to know what will happen when my generation is gone.
