I just returned home Sunday after having open heart surgery.

I would like to give kudos to the city of Rocky Mount for cutting the bushes at the cemetery.

Now you can see when you are the bus stop.

I know a few people have almost been robbed there and now they have cut the bushes back.

I would like to thank them for doing such a great job.…
