It is a cold sterile place. It is no longer a nice place to visit. Cemeteries are also supposed to be memorial parks that the living can go to in order to remember their loved ones and not just repositories for the dead. My Father...More

Did you know that your families headstone isn't safe. They are taken away and a new body is buried in between with a new headstone put there for the new body. Disgusting.
