FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Two Fort Wayne businesses are helping to restore 61 headstones that were broken and tipped over at Fort Wayne’s Jewish Cemetery.

WPTA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Ywfjgi ) Birkmeier Monument Co. and D.O McComb & Sons Funeral Homes are donating their services to reset the headstones that were vandalized in February at the graveyard.

Dave McComb of the funeral home company says company officials were saddened by this vandalism and felt it was important to step in and offer assistance.

Fort Wayne Jewish Cemetery President Dan Zweig says the cemetery has had a long association with both companies and appreciates their help.
