Nearly everything I’ve ever put at my daughter’s grave site (wind chimes, pinwheels, flowers, etc) usually gets swiped within a week. It’s incredibly sad.

Same here with my son's grave, not so much these days as they moved the office very close to his gravesite.

The cemetery folks seemed to think it was people who redo the fake flowers, make into Memorial Day wreaths and sell them on the side of the rode.

HINT for protection: I used to mark every petal with a black felt marker pen, with his initials. OR, I would take a HOLE PUNCH and punch each petal. Can't re-use those and it don't show from a distance.

Worth checking into is the possibility that the grounds keeper may be removing them. I have known several people who have had the job and they don’t like anything that they have to mow around or move.
