Letters: Low life desecrate

Solar lights on Sooke grave site stolen by some low life

Recently I marked the perimeter of my wife’s grave, located in the Sooke Lions Cemetery, with small inexpensive solar lamps, one at each corner, on a whim that there would be illumination at night.

Incredibly, someone of the low life of Sooke decided to remove them, maybe I should say stole them because that was what the removal was without my permission.

The Sooke Lions Cemetery management are in no way responsible for the removal I must add.

What type of person stoops to such a low? For me, hard to imagine.

Also, in this lovely community cemetery, some other imbecilic, contemptibly stupid minded individuals have destroyed the fence at the south eastern corner of Idlemore Road so that they can short cut their way to the main Sooke Road.

Since this desecration of my wife’s grave, and that is what it was, I have heard that other individuals use the cemetery as a recreation area for dubious reasons and to exercise their dogs, what a disgrace, what mentality.
