Rescue Resthaven Cemetery
We, the undersigned, stand in support and agreement with the complaints filed by Nancy King with the Ohio Department of Commerce concerning Resthaven Memory Garden Cemetery. We seek to have immediate and comprehensive action taken to improve the deplorable conditions of the cemetery, which include the following: inaccessibility of gravesites due to flooding and muddy conditions, stench in the mausoleum, broken and sunken headstones, heavy equipment damage to the grounds and to headstones caused by driving over them, lack of proper and consistent general maintenance, lack of action taken when complaints are made, unfinished work orders, and uncaring/unresponsive customer service. These issues have caused significant decline in the condition of the cemetery, and considerable emotional stress on loved ones, family members, plot owners, and the community. The deplorable conditions have been featured on local news programs dating back several years. There have been repeated promises for improvements made by management for years, but no significant change has occurred.
