Have some respect

---- — Why do people have to steal items from a cemetery? I put new lights on my parents' (Dorothy and Edward Herb) grave in Kratzerville a few weeks ago and now they are gone. Don't people have any respect for the dead? I was told that there were other items taken. I would appreciate it if whoever took them would return them.

I am a retired person, but I like to keep their graves decorated. I can't afford to keep replacing things because someone doesn't want to go out and purchase lights, but would rather steal from the dead.
