A decoration was a whole system of family and community activities with Decoration Day in the cemetery at its core. The following day Verna repeated this idea at the Brendle Hill decoration, as if she had been thinking about this formulation for a while and wanted to make sure she conveyed it to us.

We ran into Dorothy Cochran and Regina Howell, whom we had met and photographed at Cochran Cemetery the previous weekend.

For the North Shore decorations in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the park staff, who are responsible for preparing the cemeteries, systematically remove all decorations from the preceding year. Other cemeteries in the region use volunteers or paid help to remove all flowers by a certain date, usually in the fall or winter, or even the early spring of the following year.

Today most cemeteries in the region, such as Lovedale Cemetery in Sylva, Tuckasegee Baptist Church Cemetery in Tuckasegee, Round Hill Cemetery in Swain County, and Panther Creek Cemetery in Graham County, are entirely grassy with level, unmounded graves. Some cemeteries, such as Sawmill Hill Cemetery near Lauada, Dicks Creek Cemetery near Sylva, Woodring Cemetery on Canada Road near Tuckasegee, and Double Springs Cemetery atop Cullowhee Mountain, have both level, grassy areas and mounded, grassless areas.
