Stolen from graves

To the Editor:

Over the past several months, I have purchased and placed little solar lights on the graves of my parents at Woodland Cemetery in McHenry.

When I have gone back several days later, all the solar lights have been taken from the gravesite.

I do hope that those who took them are enjoying them, remembering where they got them and that they were taken from the graves of special people in my life.

I am sure that sometime in the future, I will again purchase solar lights and put them on their graves.

Many people have them in their yards, as we do, and I have seen them in cemeteries. They give a peaceful glow to the area.
