I would like to comment on the removal of "stuff" from the grave sites. I fully support the move to restore some peace and uniformity to the cemetery. Less is more.

I wanted to restate what I said wanting to return the Cemetery grounds to their more historic, traditional appearance with only the standard grave decorations that are allowed. I know this must have caused some real hurt to folks who had been told it was OK and that is hard for you and Board to enforce the rules and remove their additions. You seem to have handled it well by collecting the items to a place where they could retrieve them. Thank you also for directing me to the online copy of the Cemetery Association bylaws.

I have my son here since 1976 and have observed the progress thru the years of making Cottage Grove Cemetery a place of peace. It is maintained well. Ken Otto is an asset to the organization. He is professional and personable with high standards. I am pleased with the new guidelines, so it doesn't look like a circus which cheapens the atmosphere of peace & reflection.

Thank you for maintaining the property so beautifully & having rules & guidelines for decorations. This keeps the cemetery natural and beautiful & pleasant to visit. Also thank you for explaining our options for future burials & for providing a respectful service to us and our family.

The black topping of the roads is a great improvement. The mowing & tree trimming looks fantastic. Appreciate less clutter on the grave sites.

The grounds seem very well-maintained and peaceful. Otto very knowledgeable.

Beautiful cemetery. Maintenance & grounds are well cared for and look beautiful.

Great Job. Keep up the Good Work.

Neat cemetery! We come out here often & it looks nice. Ken Otto did a great job explaining everything. Thank you.

I went to the Cottage Grove cemetery on Saturday to plant flowers for my parents and grandparents. It is such a beautiful place with large mature trees and so nicely kept up. Thank you for keeping the cemetery as a peaceful beautiful place that I can come to for remembrance and calm.

We wanted to make a memorial donation to the maintenance and upkeep of the cemetery in honor of my parents. We appreciate all that your team does to keep it in such good condition. Thank you.

Very easy process. Nice to work with. Very lovely cemetery!

You are doing a wonderful job!! Thank you.

I just wanted thank you for cleaning up the C Grove cemetery. I can't tell you how many times I had to clean up my father's area with blown artificial flowers. I believe the Cgrove Cemetery looks 100% better. Thank you again.

Looks like it always has. We like it to the point of purchasing for our future.

Been coming to this cemetery for 5 years and the last couple of years it sure has improved! Easier for me to do my job, and the grounds look great!

Very helpful and friendly.
