Response to need at Iona Cemetery is very gratifying

To the editor:

The Iona Cemetery Association wants to thank you for the story about our dilemma after a tornado hit our old rural cemetery. Thanks to Bob Miller's excellent article, the response has been gratifying. Many people have helped us with the placement of scattered tombstones. We hope that in time we will have all the stones in their original positions.

We appreciate the efforts of Kim Hindman for removing the fallen trees and the debris without further damage to the monuments.

It's good to live in a community where people are so willing to help.
