Gabrielle Ray’s grave

I visited Gabrielle Ray’s grave again this week only to be disappointing yet again that the promised restoration has not started despite the offer of funds to bring about a fitting memorial; someone wrote that hope is nothing without the individual taking direct action to affect change, however, sometimes direct action just isn’t enough :-/
