Peter and Holly Barnett place flowers on a grave during the Remembering With Dignity (RWD) Cemetery Ceremony September 27 at the Moose Lake State Hospital Cemetery. Former state hospital residents who were buried anonymously in Moose Lake were remembered with song, dance, poetry and reverence. RWD is a coalition of disability rights and advocacy groups organizing to replace numbered grave markers at state institutions with proper headstones and remember people buried there with dignity and respect.
