Cold Morning in Rest Haven Cemetery

It was a little chilly above ground.  At least the deceased don’t have to worry about such things.  I wonder how much longer people will insist on the practice of wasting space with such burials.  I have seen grave yards in Europe where they layered bodies and added more dirt and let the level of the cemetery rise up higher and higher.  I have also seen where they cleaned out old crypts in Mexico after 100 years and reused them.

It is no wonder that many of us are now being cremated and having our ashes distributed back to nature.  Such cemeteries as above are a sign of the old ways which will not be sustainable going forward.
