You have my father buried in Guadalupita NM which is not entirely accurate. My father was cremated and his ashes were divided in to two urns. Officially my father's remains were interned at Dudley Hoffman Mortuary in Santa Maria CA. My older siblings who lived in New Mexico took one urn back home and had services for him back there. They kept some of the ashes and the rest was taken to his mothers grave site in Guadalupita NM and buried with her. (Ben Vigil)
