While miraculously no one in Cameron Parish was killed, 38 of it's 40 cemeteries were breached and over 340 caskets and their remains were torn from the ground and scattered into marshes, tree tops, fields and canals from as far away as 30 miles.

This monument represents some of the most treasured possessions of Cameron Parish. It has been a long journey for them, their families and those that recovered them. May they again rest in Peace.
God Bless their families.

Dedicated on the first anniversary of Hurricane Rita.
