Letter: A wonderful community ambassador

I recently encountered a wonderful, unheralded Ambassador for Kershaw County.

An out-of-town friend asked me to get some pictures of the graves of some of his relatives at Quaker Cemetery. He gave me a general description of where the graves were and I spent a good bit of time over the weekend looking for them, but I was unsuccessful.

On Monday morning, I called the cemetery office and explained my dilemma. Carolyn Jackson, who I assume manages cemetery details, told me she would assist me in any way she could. When I arrived at the office several hours later, Ms. Jackson had a file folder for me with maps to all the grave sites I was attempting to find. She gave me the maps and detailed instructions on how to get to them and where the best place to park would be. She even offered to go with me to the sites if I had any trouble!

Quaker Cemetery is a wonderful asset for Kershaw County and Ms. Jackson is to be commended for being a great ambassador for the cemetery and the county. She, like many others, is why Kershaw County is such a wonderful place to live and visit.
