JR is the youngest child of parents old enough to be her grandparents. The youngest grandchild of grandparents all born in the 1800s, one in the 1870s.
JR grew up with people who were working during the Great Depression. Parents who were in their thirties when WWII ended. She always thought it was quite normal to go with her mother and cousin to the cemetery on beautiful Sunday summer afternoons just to tidy the graves, remember family and friends, and talk about who was related to who and how we were related to them all. She grew up thinking that cemeteries were beautiful, serene places where the rules were: go regularly, make sure the graves are kept neat, speak quietly and kindly of the departed or if you can't do that, then don't speak of them at all, and never, ever, step on their graves. Not only does she still feel the same way today but she has taught her progeny to do and feel the same. Cemeteries are beautiful places to visit and interesting places to learn about: family, friends, history, society, nature, people, and yourself.
Visiting memorials on F-A-G has the same effect as visiting cemeteries in person, but without the fresh air and sunshine.

JS feels the same way, but he just doesn't talk about it in public. :)

Seems like a lot of folks are choosing options other than traditional burials these days.
Makes it difficult to locate their remains but a memorial on Find A Grave is a great solution to the problem of no gravesite.
