And expensive!!! When we buried my dad, my mom went to a cemetery that my dad had mentioned when he casually discussed plans and I think the plots were 6 or 7K apiece (in 1993). It's a huge cemetery, my friend's dad is buried there and she has a hard time finding his grave because the place is so huge. It just happens to be on a hill with a panoramic ocean view.I think that modern burial practices are wasteful, extortionistic, and a tad bit gross.
My mom chose a plot in a smaller private cemetery and I know exactly where he is.
I don't get all of the fuss with coffins, etc. I mean you really can not take it with you. On a sidenote, does anyone remember a couple of years back there was a rapper who was buried in his car? At the funeral, he was propped up like he was driving. That is just bizarre to me.
I also don't get how people wait a week+ to bury the person.
Also, I would like to donate whatever I can--why not help someone if I don't need my parts anymore?
I'm done ranting now.
