My grandmother's grave was demolished, the flowers, plants destroyed and head stone thrown at a further location because they buried someone else in front of my grandmother's grave. Is this the respect of the deceased and their loved ones that the cemetery shows? Especially, to loved ones who have been buried there for many years? My mother almost had a heart attack to see her mother's grave destroyed!
