Former residents displeased with Guaje Pines

-A A +A

When losing a relative or close friend, those left behind typically want to ensure that their loved one's gravesite is going to be taken care of as long as possible.

Some people choose perpetual care cemeteries, while others choose family plots or cemeteries where they do weeding and upkeep of that special persons grave, themselves.

In 1961 Los Alamos residents were fortunate enough to get a perpetual care cemetery, Guaje Pines, located on Range Road. Because Guaje Pines is a perpetual care cemetery, the county handles grounds keeping and grave maintenance.

In recent weeks, former Los Alamos residents Bonny and Glenn Allen visited their hometown and stopped at Guaje Pines to visit family members' graves.

Following their visit, the Allens were concerned with the state of the cemetery and wrote a letter to the editor, to be published in the Los Alamos Monitor.

When contacted about the letter, Bonny Allen stated that the cemetery is not being cared for.
