St. John Cemetery reserves the right to remove all flowers, wreaths, bushes, trees, flowers or other decorations that are in violation of cemetery regulations or if they become unsightly. The cemetery will do all possible to protect floral decorations but cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred.
