  1. more than half of the names on the memorial headstone were not those of forgotten patients, but of beloved members of local families. Such a shame that those wanting to do good did not do proper investigation. Thus breaking the hearts of many families whose names of loved ones appear on the stone. Each and every patient of Willard had a kind and befitting service before they were laid to rest. But obviously those seeking their own recognition did not do due diligence. Perhaps a law suit may be a reminder of their haste and poor judgement. We will see.
