Jeff, Debbie, Kay, Steven, George, Mike, and Jeanette met on April 27th for our monthly cleaning day. We mowed, weeded, replaced flowers, and removed all of the brambles growing over the Hagedorn Rosebush. We also repainted a small portion of the fence while the weather was nice.
Lowell Herzog, a headstone conservationist, met with us to reset Elsie Dittrich’s headstone. The entire process took about an hour and it was great for all of us to have a hand in helping. Lowell will be repairing a few more of our headstones that have been damaged over time. He’s a great guy to work with and I feel confident that our cemetery is in good hands. Be sure to check out his website to see more of his work. http://www.texasgravestoneconservation.com/
Here are some pictures of how we reset Elsie Dittrich’s headstone.
