Act of kindness touched many at Enumclaw cemetery

What a uniquely kind gesture.

Many people were touched by the kindness of someone who placed small Christmas stockings on a tree in the infant section of Enumclaw Evergreen Memorial Park. Each was adorned with the name of a baby buried at the cemetery. The act was done anonymously and, according to cemetery staff, meant a lot to the many families who have children buried there.

Someone out of the kindness of their heart placed little Christmas socks on a tree in the baby section at Enumclaw Evergreen Memorial Park.

Each sock had a handwritten name of a baby that had been placed here at the Enumclaw Cemetery. I can’t tell you how much that little act of kindness has meant to everyone.

I want to send out a thank you to all the people that took their time to be so kind and touch the hearts of these families.

Thank you,

Enumclaw Evergreen Memorial Park
