“We’ve got a little over 400 tress in the cemetery so any time we have a storm we’re always picking up limbs, said Zach Wills, the manager.  “One a major storm like that we’re always kind of anxious to see what we have to deal with, what we have to clean up.”

Wills says a few headstones were also damaged but overall he says he’s thankful.

“It could have been a lot worse.”
