So, if there is a huge windstorm, or a really heavy rain, do you you plan to go to the cemetary to clean up your personal memorial-in your jammies and it’s 28 degrees outside? I didn’t think so. So why not plant a tree in your yard, or another family yard, and rest assured that no one will deface it. Personally I would not want my loved one buried next to what amount to a circus show, with you and your family probably tromping all over an are that is not yours.
They have public meetings monthly, but not in December. Next year you ought to go to a metting to learn more about their policies and procedures. Here is the phone number for Union Cemetary (from their letterhead) P.O.Box 551 Brentwood, California 94513. Phone 925-634-4748; fax 925-634-9783. Unioncemetarydistrict.com
I am sincerely sorry for your loss.
