The damage has been cleaned up.

Volunteers placed flowers at the graves to show that there is more love in the community than hate.

"I just honestly was speechless. I couldn't believe it," said Shannon Haldman, from Scent With Love. "I was just heartbroken. I couldn't imagine coming to a loved one's grave and seeing that someone did this."

Police are still investigating and told Channel 11 they will be stepping up patrols.
