Why not change the subject line to fit the conversation??
Many people just scan the subject line to see if it's something they want to
read. This has been dealing with cemeteries for a while now and someone
with some great ideas could be missing it. Only takes a second to change
the 'subject' to fit the content

Subject: Re: [BRE] New Here - with a question

an endowment fund established for the purpose of maintaining the cemeteries
seems to be the answer. funds invested and disbursed by a trust officer at
a local bank, FDIC insured --
as you say, it is the almighty dollar!! maybe the income to the maintaince
endowment from the fees charged for burial? license fees for the Funeral
Homes? contributions from family of the deceased? all of which would be
well and good for the future but how about the existing? as Sarah noted, a
1% tax is possible.
