Dear Editor:

How come whenever I read an article concerning Bayside Cemetery the word decrepit always precedes it? There should be a perpetual care fund to care for the gravesites (“Marines honor a PFC killed in 1930,” Aug. 8, South Queens edition).

The conditions at the cemetery have remained terrible despite occasional high-profile incidents over the years.

It looks like something out of a Steven King novel to see the twisted gravestones, broken trees and damaged mausoleums.
