Writer heartbroken over broken stone

To the editor:

You know, I sit here and ask why people do not have a little respect for the dead. I went to the cemetery where my daddy is. I cried my heart out. Someone ran over my daddy’s grave, and broke his headstone in two. My daddy has been there for 54 years. This is not the first time my people have been done this way.

I did not see you do this, but someone did. If you do know who he was, I do: The good Lord. I will ask him to forgive you.
