Photo by Doug GammonHave these monuments fallen over the edge from above, or were they located on the flats and simply tipped?

Photo by Doug GammonWhite Marble monuments tipped this badly are almost condemned to break soon due to all of the pressure on them due to the severe tip on them.

Photo by Doug GammonWill this monument fall over the edge tomorrow? This year? In two years? Should it be moved or allowed to fall? Moving it means location of grave is lost. Allowing it to stay until it falls means a severe safety hazard as well as it's immediate destruction soon after.

Photo by Doug GammonOnly two small trees hold this heavy monument at the top of the cliff. Will it fall this week? This year? Next year? Unfortunately we just do not have the time to get to this cemetery to work on such monuments.
