Burial Site

In Otherwise Engaged by Suzanne Finnamore, she offered the following quote by Jane Hamilton, " In the end maybe what marriage offered was the determination of one's burial site". I think marriage would only make it more complicated. Are you buried with your family or his? It may not matter if you're from the same place, (you could be in the same cemetery as both families) or you live together in a town away from all your relatives and just get buried there. Nowadays most people move away from their hometowns, but many do go home eventually...even if it is after death. Rick James died in LA, but he chose to have his final resting place in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY, his hometown. Do you know where you'll be buried?
