Letter: Cemetery plats make great Christmas gifts

Posted

To the editor:

I know this might be an odd consideration for a Christmas or holiday gift; however, it is one of the few gifts that last forever, will not rust, needs no batteries or power, and will give your family peace of mind during a crisis.

Yes, have you ever thought of giving the family a cemetery plat as a holiday gift? Admittedly, it is a little bit unusual and a topic most choose not speak about, however, we all know of stories from families and friends scrambling to purchase a grave at the time of a tragedy. The purchase of a grave or a cremation niche can give your family peace of mind now and at the time when needed.

Consider the gift that lasts forever.

Contact Enzly Ramsey, the superintendent at 401-253-6426 or myself for details.
