*ENTRY (AFTER THE STORM)

Oak Bowery Cemetery
Faulkner County,
Arkansas

FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) – While there are hundreds of homes across the area under repair at this hour, there's a different kind of home that fell victim to the storm that some volunteers weren't going to let stay that way.

Chainsaws cut through the usual peace and tranquility of the Oak Bowery Cemetery.

The century-old property wasn't spared the tornado's fury and that made loved ones, who saw the damage, sick.

Three historical oaks were torn down in the storm. But the church, still standing with scars, was a comfort. Strangers came in to help clean it all up.

For those who consider this their loved ones' eternal homes, this kind of care and attention to repairing them is a kindness bringing peace back to those at rest.

The church said without the help from those volunteers, it would have taken them months to get as far as the clean-up has gotten.
