PLEASE BUS YOUR OWN GRAVESITES. TRASH CANS ARE LOCATED BY EACH EXIT.

NO ALCOHOL IN GLASS BOTTLES; IT MAKES THE SPIRITS ANGRY.

NO CHOREOGRAPHED DANCING WITH A ZOMBIFIED MICHAEL JACKSON AT ANY TIME.

THIS CEMETERY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS, SUCH AS OCCULTIC PARAPHERNALIA OR EXHUMATION EQUIPMENT.

EPITAPHS SHOULD BE CARVED IN ENGLISH; IF NOT, THEY SHOULD STILL USE PROPER GRAMMAR AND CAPITALIZATION.

The Catholic cemeteries in St. Louis have a "No Firearms Allowed" rule posted, which isn't too far off from yours.

Signs, signs, everywhere signs, I say, "leave them dead people alone".

Hi Moni -- is it cold there, it's 19 here, killed everything, esp the fruit crops --

the Catholic cemetery in the picture once had a "no crosses on the graves" rule, but it seems to have gone away, only floral arrangements were allowed -- there is still a limit of two floral arrangements per grave but I think it's ignored

No Jim, it is not cold here. We are just 33 miles north of the Mexican border.
