  • My Father is in this cemetery along with my Grandparents, and everything has been okay until today. My family planned a remembrance dinner in my Father's honor, so we called the cemetery and checked the Google page hours and both showed it was open until 6pm. I pull up to the main gate at 4:57pm and it's chained shut, now we can't go visit my Father and the head lady there named Robin tells me they close early after the clocks are set back. Not sure why, since it's 5:30pm and the sun is still out...I'm very displeased right now since I drove 45 minutes from Benson and the rest of my family was meeting me there.
