Killisnoo Island Cemetery Revitalization Project

Lemon Creek Correctional Center Inmate Council president, Jack Earl, submitted photographs of completed memorial crosses to be donated to the Killisnoo Island Cemetery. The project, entitled “Remembrance & Honor” is not only an artistic expression, but also a personal representation of honor to so many. A copper plaque on each cross is engraved with the project title and the phrase “into Gods hands but not forgotten.” The intent of the project was to show that even though they are incarcerated, offenders have honor and want to give back to their communities.
