Public Works is insensitive about tombs on St. Thomas

I was shocked and appalled by the lack of communication from the Public Works Department, which is in charge of the cemetery. They gave no form of notification to me or any of the family stating that they would be plastering over the grave of my daughter, Esrica M. McCall, who died Aug. 16, 2010.
So imagine my surprise and shock when I went there to spend some time by the tomb. It is a good thing I have pictures for remembering where she was placed or else I would have been putting up her favorite Sponge Bob stickers on the wrong grave.
Not everyone is fortunate at this moment to purchase a tombstone, so why are we forced to try and figure out where our family member or loved one is buried - even though we took our time writing on the grave the day we buried them?
