Resurrection Cemetery & Mausoleums reviews

Looking for Mary the ghost's grave but couldn't find it in section M-M. Enjoyed viewing a lot of the old graves. This place is a must trip. more »
TO EVERYONE WHO COMPLAINS ABOUT "MISSING" DECORATIONS : I'm sorry this is NOT a small, country, small town or "Church side" Cemetery. If you understood the cost of doing even the most minimal amount of landscaping in such a large location, you might understand the problems the staff has to face. There is also no staff available to safeguard your decorations from "misguided" people who "relocate" those decorations to another grave. (Used grave decorations really have no "resale" value.) This is not something that is intended to "Break Your Heart" every time you put decorations on a Loved Ones grave. The economics of the cost of care mean that the limited landscaping staff must cut the grass as fast as possible. This means that most "decorations" including American Flags may be disposed of within a VERY SHORT TIME after they are left at the grave site. Also, the speed needed in cutting the grass means that very often decorations, such as plastic "planters", are damaged. This is not done out of malice, but because of the sheer volume of work needed to be done. You may answer with "Then they should hire more staff, and have more machines!" If you consider the vast number of graves, the amount of plots that were sold YEARS AGO, the few families that pay for "Perpetual Care" of their family plots, and the lack of funds The Archdiocese Of Chicago suffers from in this modern era, the situation becomes clear. The Catholic Cemeteries of Chicagoland are still ACTIVE, and being cared for, although not in the "style of 1960". There are many, many Cemeteries around this nation that receive NO care, except for the case of an Internment. Some of these are "Catholic" Cemeteries. With the closing of so many Catholic Schools, and even some Parishes, due to the financial situation, the situation becomes even more clear. Honoring and Remembering YOUR "Loved One" is very important ! This is VERY true, and the correct thing to do. However, in this" modern era", is the putting of "disposable" decorations on their grave the best way to Honor them? Could a donation in THEIR name to someplace like St. Jude Children's Cancer Hospital, or La Rabida Children's Hospital, or The Shriners Hospital For Children, or some place similar, be something that might be of Great Honor to their Precious Memory ? Jim Melka former Archdiocese Of Chicago, Volunteer, Mandated, Lay Minister P.S. And YES, my Mother, Father, and MANY family members are buried in Queen Of Heaven and Resurrection Cemeteries.
Groundkeepers are careless. They destroyed most of the flowers placed by our gravestone. THIS HAPPENED MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE FIRST YEAR HAVING THIS SPOT.
