After the older family members passed away in NYC the graves were not visited very often. When they were alive every holiday and often when there was no holiday we brought flowers, trimmed the weeds, made the graves look nice. But that faded away in time. I know I felt they were not there in the graveyard. Their spirit or essence or whatever makes us US is not there, just their remains.
Most of my family, since the early 1900s, were buried in Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery in MV. The few Catholics are buried across the road in St. Johns. I think that's the name. St Johns is a lovely cemetery with a lot of beautiful trees and blooming shrubs. Or that's how I remember it from the 1970s.
My mother bought me a plot at LAFC but RR wanted me with him so that's where my ashes will go.
