Volunteers clean Moore cemetery damaged in tornado

MOORE, Okla. – In the path of that tornado sat a cemetery right next to the Plaza Towers neighborhood.

The Moore Cemetery took a direct hit from Monday’s twister.

Wednesday a group of volunteers cleaned the debris out of the cemetery.

They were told some storm victims could be laid to rest in the cemetery after it’s cleaned.

“We’re cleaning the cemetery so people can have services here,” said Mindy Butler.

“You’re speechless. You want them to feel good in such a devastating time,” said Delphine Hensley.

Delphine had a very personal reason for helping to clean the cemetery.

Her daughter, who died of breast cancer at age 35, is buried there.
