Having been born and growing up in Gallia County, one of the most fond and beautiful memories I have is visiting Mound Hill Cemetery, with my parents, and looking out over the Ohio River.
On a recent visit to Gallipolis, and going to Mound Hill (parents, et. al. are buried there), it definitely is only a memory.
I find it impossible to understand how anyone could even think of destroying all of the beauty, to say nothing of the danger of driving up and down that unsightly hill. It is totally lacking any landscaping personality.
How could anyone expect family members to even consider a burial site at what used to be one of the most beautiful spots in the entire Gallipolis area.
I regret what I saw, but certainly do treasure the memories.
I can only hope the revenue from those beautiful trees is being invested in a worthy cause.
