  1. If you can’t make it there by 5 o’clock don’t bother its chained closed. You cant get in there. no nighttime investigations and on 3 sides there are biker bars so you have noise.

  2. Sadly, the cemetery, and Daytona Beach, has been overrun by the homeless. they have no choice BUT to lock it off. They are destroying any and all historic points in this area.

  3. Dear Mark,
    I pray GOD shows u the true meaning of love and living life…Do u know anyone who said that they wanted to become homeless?
    Do u know anyone who said that they wanted to starve? Or be arrested for trying to eat or cloth themselves out of a dumpster! Trash…let’s arrest people who are hungry and eating all the ridiculous amounts of foods thrown away in this wasteful society. Time u wake up and go help people instead of being so self consumed. Im sure homeless people would rather have a house…what do u think?
    Who’s to say who desirvrs anything except
    GOD. We will all meet our maker and have a judgement day, hope you can look back and have feelings that you have currently misplaced.
    GOD I pray for YOU to please show Mark the true meaning of life
    and love and compassion for his fellow brothers because obviously he’s clueless. We are all connected…get a clue the end is near then u only have 2 choices…what will u choose? Hopefully peace & love, not a fire burning eternal and eternal thirst… praying for you..
    GOD Bless

    • Just stop it, half of them don’t want help, or want to work… you commented this two years ago and it’s worse now. While you’re busy telling people about the homeless, have you personally helped any? Sheltered them, fed them, clothed them? I’ll wait for your response

    • The homeless…some have a run of bad luck and with help can improve, others are rats on two legs. There is one or the other and everything in between.
      Emma you constantly use GOD and praying as the answer. I certainly wouldn’t want YOU on my side in time of need, How about a little less praying and see the on earth now reality of action speaking louder then prayers. anyone who says my thoughts and prayers are with you as a condolence is physically doing nothing.

  4. I took this picture of my husband in Boot Hill Saloon, after taking a walk in the Cemetery…he had on no chains whatsoever, also a light or angel wing appears on bottom right of his vest…
