Brutsches' efforts make Babyland better

A Sandusky woman, her husband and three others started sprucing up Woodlawn Cemetery's Babyland several days early, because of a forecast of inclement weather later this week. Amy Brutsche planned to rake pine needles covering the graves today the last remaining step to what she considers a vast improvement to Babyland's appearance. The five people worked between 10 to 12 hours over two days.

A Sandusky woman, her husband and three others started sprucing up Woodlawn Cemetery's Babyland several days early, because of a forecast of inclement weather later this week.

Amy Brutsche planned to rake pine needles covering the graves today the last remaining step to what she considers a vast improvement to Babyland's appearance. The five people worked between 10 to 12 hours over two days.

"It brought tears to my eyes yesterday when I saw it," she said.

Two rows of windmills and plastic flowers now grace Babyland. Brutsche said as she and the others worked, 40 to 50 parents visiting their loved ones' graves remarked how pretty the section looked.

Brutsche's 2 1/2-year-old son, Robert Jr., is buried near Babyland.

Brutsche said her youngest daughter, 4-year-old Gabrielle, smiled when the two of them walked under the gate of the refurbished Babyland.

The picture looks wonderful Thank everyone for their efforts in this. I was going to help out on Thursday but I see you have already gotten it done. I will be visiting the area of Babyland this weekend due to the fact that my nephew is laid to rest there and his 1st birthday would be saturday. It will be nice to walk up and see it redone. Congratulations on a job well done.
