Sisters-in-law Janet Schmett-Chanley, left, and Bonnie Schmett, both of Huntingburg, walk to their car after changing the bouquets on their family members' gravestones at Fairmount Cemetery in Huntingburg on Friday. The two keep up with the bouquets in the cemetery but worry about the future generations continuing. "The younger people aren't doing it. It's a tradition that's going away," Schmett-Chanley said.
