Michael Rutz, of Enterprise, an Army veteran and high school special education teacher, places a rose on his son's grave during funeral services Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012, at Sunrise Cemetery in Manhattan. His son, Daniel, died Sept. 24 at age 28 after battling mental illness for years. Rutz believes the state's health care system failed to help his son get the treatment he needed to get better. His son was in and out of state hospitals 12 times during the past two years.
