Modesto workers rebuild same wall, different day

— Foreman Sam Moreno and groundskeeper Edmond Keene rebuilt a 25-foot section of the rock wall Tuesday at Acacia Cemetery on Scenic Drive in Modesto.

Moreno estimates that in the 40 years he has worked at the cemetery, he has rebuilt portions of the rock wall 18 to 20 times.

The wall was damaged again March 6 after a car crashed into it. No one was injured in the incident.
