Concerns raised about gravesite upkeep

Staff Writer

A San Benito native has raised concerns about the upkeep of his family members’ gravesites at a local cemetery.

Seventy-five year-old Raul Rodriguez of San Benito, who currently resides in Denton, Texas, said that when visiting the Resaca City three weeks ago to clear the gravesites of departed family members at Mont Meta Memorial Park, he noticed something startling.

“My brother’s headstone has been chipped around the edges,” Rodriguez said on Wednesday. “It comes about possibly because of the use of a lawnmower too close to it. All I know is that the lawnmower that they used, which is a little tractor, rolled over the headstones.”
