Portion of Large Tree Down

On Tuesday, May 20, 2014, a portion of a large tree broke off and came crashing down in what is known as Section I. At least half of the original tree remains standing. The portion that broke off and came down is hughe. It is difficult to determine how much damage was done to tombstones in the path of the fallen tree but a large monument with a full size angel atop (GANGEWER), was hit by the tree and the beautiful angel was totally destroyed.

The following photos taken on the morning of May 20th show the portion of the large tree that came down. The very last two photos show the Gangewer monument prior to the tree falling.




























And so it goes...
