Letter: Kudos to caring staff at NOTL cemetery

Dear editor:

Our family moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake in 1949. It was Niagara Township then.

I have seen many changes, some good and some very troubling. There have been a myriad of complaint letters to the editor recently, many of which are valid complaints and I share concerns in regards to the direction of our town, especially the last few years.

This year has been challenging for all of us, for those in leadership as well as all taxpayers. I expect we will be unable to find one resident who has not been tested to some degree.

With all the complaint letters to the editor, I would like to give kudos to one department of our unique town.

In April my wife passed on and we had always considered being laid to rest in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We chose Niagara Lakeshore cemetery. In the midst of COVID, Easter weekend and all the regulations, David Voogt and his staff were compassionate and professional every step of the way.

Visiting the cemetery regularly during this summer, I am amazed at the exceptional care the staff takes to maintain the grounds and gravesites.

Even as we grieve the loss of our loved ones we are grateful that we can visit such a well-maintained resting place in our town.
